They serve these at a local restaurant here in TX. This is NOT a casserole! These guys are dressed for dinner in their best jackets! The WHOLE potato, baked and split like a white baked potato. You just gotta try these to believe how simple and delish they really are! Enjoy!

My husband and I love these so much - and I finally got smart and made a whole spice shaker of the spice mix to keep on hand!
