Twice Baked Potatoes... the best I have ever had!

These potatoes are insanely good!

4 large baking potatoes, scrubbed
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 cup milk, or as needed
2 egg yolks, beaten
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar
 
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Bake the potatoes on a rack for 1 hour or until soft (I tend to peel the potatoes and cube them then boil and mash them its faster).
Allow them to cool slightly.
Add the butter, salt, black pepper, and cayenne.
Mash well, adding enough milk to make a fairly stiff mixture.
Add the beaten egg yolks and stir well.
Spoon the mixture into a baking pan and top with shredded cheese.
Bake for 20 minutes, until well browned.
