Family ate it well enough hence the 3 star rating for "liked it"...They were OK, albeit a little bland...Perhaps a dollop of a good spaghetti sauce on top would be nice...Maybe some shredded mozzarella melted on top of the dollop of spaghetti sauce would be even better! This recipe is OAMC-friendly, too...The potatoes were prepared per recipe instructions up until the potato shells were re-stuffed...Once they were re-stuffed they were flash freezed, double wrapped in plastic wrap, placed in a freezer bag and stored in the freezer for a couple days...Then they were removed from the freezer, unbagged and unwrapped, placed on a baking sheet and thawed in the fridge...Once thawed, they were placed in a 400F preheated oven for 35 minutes until the tops got toasty...Thanks for posting this recipe!
