1) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

4) Cut each potato into half, lengthwise.
5) Between the 6 potato halves, evenly divide the onion slices.
6) Bring the potatoes back together with the onions in between, and with aluminum foil, wrap tightly.
7) In the center of a baking dish or a cookie sheet, place the potatoes and bake in the oven for 1 hour.

9) From the potatoes, remove the onions.
10) In a large mixing bowl, put the removed onions.
11) From each potato half, gently scoop out the cooked potato. Do not tear the skin. Reserve the potato skin to use as boats, for serving.
12) To the onions in the bowl, add the cooked potato.
13) To this, add the butter or margarine.
14) In a bowl, combine the milk, white pepper, onion powder and liquid smoke. Mix well.

16) With an electric mixer or a whisk, whip the potato mixture until it is blended well and is smooth.
