Gourmet Potatoes

Recipe by MsFunnybones

This wonderful dish has been a family favorite since I was a child. I think I remember my mom getting the recipe out of the local newspaper back in the early 70's. It tastes like a loaded baked potato to me, only better! It is great for the holidays, especially the 'dairy' ones.

This indeed is a yummy dish, that just pulls you in from the cold outside, and begs you to sit right on the couch with a big spoon, and lazily devour this to warm both your insides and clear your mind of any unpleasantness. Very easy to put together, inexpensive, and glorious for your soul. I agree, it does taste like a baked potato/skins! Maybe add some bacon, a dollop of sour cream and green onions next time. You can't go wrong on this. OH MY! Made for my PAC baby, Fall 2011.
