Preheat oven to 400°F. Scrub and dry potatoes; prick with a fork. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until soft. Cool enough to handle. Cut each potato in half lengthwise. Scoop out pulp with a spoon, leaving about 1/2″ of potato in the shell. Set potato pulp aside for potato salad or hash browns. Place potato shells, skin-side down, in a 13″ x 9″ baking pan. Brush the inside of shells with melted butter. Sprinkle with seasoned salt and pepper. Bake 10-15 minutes until golden and serve hot. If you prefer, potato halves can be cut into bite-sized pieces. Let each person garnish with favorite toppings. Serves 4 to 6.
