      Such a fun recipe. These are very yummy tasting just like a French fry with out the mess or all the fat "Yea". Find that baked potatoes are as a rule just a vessel for very fattening toppings. These lovely little gems however are great with or without toppings. Thanks so much for the post.

      Mmmm, a very yummy, easy potato recipe! I luved the ease of just popping the spuds into the oven and letting them roast away. The skins got very crispy and the interior of the taters was so creamy and somehow buttery. SOOO YUMMY!!!! Thank you so much for sharing this great recipe with us, dreamer! I will certainly make it again, maybe topping the taters with some cheese. Made and reviewed for one of my PAC babies March 2010.
