    Acadia*'s Note:

    This recipe is actually similar to twice baked potatoes, except the second part is cooked in the microwave. We always refer to them as "diet" potatoes as a joke, since they are really loaded potatoes.

      What's not to like? These are the best darn 'Diet' potatoes I've ever had. Who knew full fat cheddar, bacon and sour cream were diet food? :) Acadia, it's clear I've been reading the wrong books. ;) Honoured to make this as a "Thank You" for voting for Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia in the 2010 Kraft Hockeyville Competition.
