      Mash pulp with a potato masher. Stir in milk, yogurt, 1/4 cup cheese, 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, and pepper. Microwave at HIGH 1 minute or until thoroughly heated.
    • 3.    Spoon potato mixture evenly into shells; sprinkle evenly with remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Arrange potato halves in bottom of slow cooker.
      Cover and cook on HIGH for 25 minutes or until thoroughly heated and cheese melts.
