    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    These are easy to make and can be made hours in advance or a day ahead and chilled until ready to pop in the oven, instead of cheddar you can use a mixture of you favorite cheeses, I like using marbled mixed with the cheddar. If you are serving these as an appetizer you can use 10-12 small russet potatoes instead of large --- all ingredients may be adjusted to taste --- these are very good!

      Excellent skin's. I made these to go with our once a month appetizer night. They were wonderful! I made as posted with the exception of cutting the recipe down to 2 servings and replacing the fresh parsley with cilantro. Yum! I also topped it with a touch of Quick Hot Salsa. Loved the crispy skin of the potato. This is a keeper. Thanks for posting. :)
