I don't necessarily have a recipe for this, but here's a jumping off point:
Bake, after you oil the peel, as usual in the oven. Then, when they're almost done, cut a slit going lengthwise and scoop out most of the pulp, leaving a scant 1/2" of flesh in the skin. Do this with all potatoes, and then mash them with whatever you like, such as butter, (I add cream cheese), roasted garlic, or parmesan, cheese, salt and pepper, or bacon or whatever you choose. Then, carefully stuff the filling back into the shells, using either a large piping tip or a spoon. (If you use a piping tip, it really looks pretty). Then,pop 'em back in the oven till the tops are golden.

lol lol lol!

Another thought - you can also incorporate cream into the potatoes too, just not so much to make them soupy.
You can also lay a thin-ish slice of tomato across the top, before you put them back into the oven. Baked tomato on top gives it a bit of extra sweetness. (This is a good one to go with cream and cream cheese)

My kids love twice baked...I use heavy cream, real butter, sour cream, sliced green onion, cooked crisp and crumbled bacon, salt and pepper and a touch of garlic...Beat the heck out of them put, on a topping of bread crumbs mixed with parmesan and back in oven they go til hot through...Mind you, this is how I clean the refrigerator and the kitchen sink

jkath has the method down - what you mix into the "pulp" and stuff back in the shells is all up to you.

Sour cream, chives, bacon bits and cheese ...

A little canned Wolf brand chili and onions and chedder ....

I usually use sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese. Another one that is good though is this one--Brown ground beef (break it up as you cook it) and chopped onions. Add a can of cream of mushroom soup and, if you want, mushrooms. Simmer until heated through. Add the scooped out potatoes to this mixture, then fill the potato shells and bake. If you only want to do one or two poatoes, this is a good way to use left over hamburger/mushroom soup gravy. For a little flavor variation, add sour cream to the mixture before putting in potato shells. (If you make the hamburger/mushroom soup gravy, then add sour cream and serve over noodles, you have a quick hamburger stroganoff).
