I love twice baked potatoes, and these are the best I've ever had. It came out of my great grandmother's cookbook called "Cotton Country Collection." Enjoy!

Loved these taters! I baked the potatoes in the oven. I really enjoyed the sauteed onions in the filling. Easy to make and very good. I will definitely make these again. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Fall 2011.
