Made for your Wk 10 *Football Pool* win & because DH is esp fond of twice-baked potatoes. I liked that the outcome is low-fat & low-cal w/o sacrificing flavor & satisfaction. A sprinkle of crispy bacon crumbles would also make a nice company-worthy touch. Thx for sharing this recipe & congrats on you FB pool win. :-)
