Pizza Stuffed Potatoes

I get bored easily.  That might be an understatement.  I get bored often and frequently.   So, in order to keep myself and everyone else in our house on their toes, I try and introduce new meal ideas weekly.
Pizza stuffed potatoes are on the menu tonight.  Baked potatoes, stuffed with all things pizza like, especially cheese.  Potatoes can pretty much be stuffed with anything.  So go ahead, have fun, and get your spud on!

Pizza Stuffed Potatoes

4 large russet potatoes, unpeeled and washed
1 cup favourite pasta sauce (i use tomato & roasted garlic)
4 slices deli ham
1/4 cup chopped mushrooms
2 Tbsp diced red onions
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 400F
Roast potatoes for 1 hour until fork tender.  Remove from oven.  Allow to cool until safe to handle.  Split open and scoop out potato, leaving a thin shell of potato inside skins.
In small bowl mash potatoes.  Add in onions, mushrooms and tomato sauce.  Mix well.  Stuff potato shells with tomato mixture and top with sliced ham and mozzarella cheese.  Sprinkle with basil.
Return to oven and broil until cheese melts.
