Ham & Cheese Stuffed Potatoes

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by alimel_01

When I was growing up, there was always a potato on the table. This is one of my mom's favorite recipes & we still fix these potatoes regularly. It's a good replacement for regular baked potaotes! This recipe calls for the potatoes to be baked in the oven to cook but you can cook them in the microwave. I have not had as much luck getting the potatoes to stay together when cooked in the microwave but you can try either way you like. The microwave is much faster, of course!

Made these delicious potatoes for lunch today as I'm trying to use up my ham. The cream cheese really adds a great texture and flavor to these twice-baked potatoes. I saw where you mentioned swiss cheese in the directions, but it is not mentioned in the ingredient list so I added 1/2 cup of it as well as the cheddar cheese. These potatoes make a nice lunch all on their own and even better with a side salad. Thanks for the post.
