Heat oven to 375 degrees. Prick potatoes with fork. Bake potatoes 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes or until tender. Let stand until cool enough to handle.

Cut potatoes lengthwise into fourths; carefully scoop out pulp, leaving 1/4-inch shells. Refrigerate potato pulp for another use.

Set oven control to broil. Place potato shells, skin sides down, on rack in broiler pan. Brush with butter.

Broil with tops 4 to 5 inches from heat 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp and brown. Sprinkle cheese over potato shells. Broil about 30 seconds longer or until cheese is melted. Serve hot with sour cream and green onions.
