From the Comfort Food Diet cookbook of Taste of Home. This recipe was a real hit with DH. He ate 2 potatoes and a half from this recipe. He went 3 times to take another piece. LOL

Absolutely wonderful! I used Yukon Golds, and used onion powder and sea salt, as well as a good grind of black pepper. Crisp on the outside, light and creamy on the inside, and completely delicious throughout! Thanks for posting!

I love this unique way of making a baked potato! I made this exactly as posted, except I used onion powder, then added salt and pepper. I used russet baking potatoes. I will definitely try this again, playing around with the seasonings. Thanks for sharing.

Wonderfully flavorful potatoes, these! Instead of the onion salt, I too used a little onion powder, then a pinch of salt along with a bit of lemon pepper (along with the other indicated ingredients, of course)! Easy as could be to prepare, & great eating! [Made & reviewed in the current ADOPT A TAG event]
