This is a very versatile recipe. I just baked my potatoes in the microwave then topped them with butter, salt, pepper, gruyere, and ham and baked them in the oven until the cheese melted and was slightly brown. One day I'll try other combinations, but the gruyere was wonderful.

Yum! These were tasty and quick, and I love how versatile the recipe is. I used havarti cheese b/c I had it on hand, and thyme instead of the cayenne. Next time I might use dry mustard...mmm. I was concerned that the recipe didn't call for enough cheese, but the result was creamy and good. I did increase the salt quite a bit and add black pepper at the table. Thanks for sharing; this is definitely a keeper. Made for Healthy Choices 2008.

Great. I served with the green bean salad as recommended. Was spicier than I anticipated but we enjoyed it!
