Preparing stuffed potatoes?

I was wondering what is the best way to bake the potatoes for twice baked or stuffed? I figured no foil in 350 oven?

Thanks!!!

I cook mine at 400 or higher, so the skin is nice and crispy.

When I have made them I do not use foil. You are right about the crispy skin.

Ditto. Something that I read in Harold McGee's The Curious Cook that helps crisp the skins is to give them a good coating of vegetable oil before baking.

Alton Brown demonstrated this - here is how he explainers it.
