We really enjoyed these tasty spuds Chocolatl. I made them exactly as written, using all the listed ingredients. Loved the texture and flavor of the potatoes prepared this way. I used small grape tomatoes (all I had on hand), which were terrific in this dish. Thanks for sharing, Made for the Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT8 - Australia
I really enjoyed the baked potatoes here and I do believe that little tip will stick around, it really made a difference in the texture. I subbed some lightly cooked red pepper for the ask for tomato and for me that worked very well. The flavor is very good and I like the added bit of veg. :D
These potatoes are wonderful! They have such a yummy, roasty flavour! Mmmm, very rich and very special! I thought they might need more seasoning, but they were great just with salt and pepper. I used cream cheese instead of cream as I was out of the latter. It still turned out yummy, creamy and decadent. I had organic potatoes, so did not bother to remove the peel.
All in all a true keeper! Thank you so much for sharing it here with us, Chocolatl! Made and reviewed for Everyday is a Holiday Tag Game February 2011.
