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.

Made 1/2 as written and 1/2 subbing in peppers and broccoli for me. The eggs in this recipe made these taste more like the store bought frozen twice baked potatoes that I love. I'd have to say the original ham/cheese was better then my veggie makeovers. Very good recipe!
