Howdy Potatoes

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by bullwinkle

This is a nice appetizer from one of my three Kitchen Keepsake books. I usually baked more potatoes than the recipe calls for since there is usually more dip than dippers for us. The preparations and cooking times are a guess. Cook time depends on how long it takes for your potato to bake.

What a spectacular recipe! My husband gave it a huge thumbs-up. I just cleaned my taters and popped them in the microwave for about 8 minutes, then let cool slightly and cut into wedges to deep fry. Oh gosh, gonna make these again without a doubt. Thanks! ~ Sheila
