I saw this on Everyday Italian with Giada De Laurentiis. So, I tried it out, and oh my goodness! The potatoes were so good, even before baking them, that my boyfriend and I were licking the spoon like it was cake batter. The cheeses really are what make this a winner.

MMMMM! I made these after I got the recipe from the Food Network site. So EASY & Good! Almost like twice baked potatoes with a lot less work and yummy italian cheeses. My family loved these. Served with Pork Milanese and a green salad.

This dish is just heavenly! I agree with the earlier poster who said it's like twice baked potatoes only with less work. It's also good with some cooked, crumbled up bacon added.
