My potato was HUGE! So I used one potato and halved the recipe. Adjusted the cooking time to my potato size. Worked perfectly! I reduced the amount of onion and could still taste it....so I'd probably reduce it more. Loved the ham and cheese combo, and making a baked potato a full meal! Thanks for sharing! Made for Zaar Stars tag game.
