    skarimom from Idaho's Note:

    This idea came from the "Take Home Chef " he did a similar recipe on his show and I changed it up. I prefer to use fresh herbs, but anything you like will work. It's the method of cooking that I really like you can change it up to suit your taste and have fun with. Top with cheeses or bacon or both it is very versatile and fun. I haven't put measurements, because I do everything by sight. Prep time includes boiling time.

      This needs more heat and more fat. At 375 degrees on my silicone baking mats, after 20 minutes of baking I'm left with limp dry potato pucks. And I have guests coming in 10 minutes.

      I tried this on Christmas day because I wanted something different to go with ham. I followed the recipe pretty closely, but the end result didn't really taste much different from regular baked potatoes (of course, they looked a lot different). I am not quite sure why so many reviewers raved about this recipe.

      This is a wonderful recipe! I used Rosemary and Thyme and Canola oil instead of olive oil, and it turned out great. Thank you skarimom for posting this winner.
