A fantastic lunch for the DM and I (I had mine with a green salad) and the DM thoroughly enjoyed hers as is including young fresh green silverbeet (anything that gets the DM to eat green vegetables gets bonus points in my book). I did have to use vintage cheddar as shock/horror I was out of parmesan. Thank you Jan for a great lunch, made for Edition 9 - Make My Recipe.

These potatoes were fantastic!!! I used fresh spinach and just cooked it for a couple minutes in a skillet with some oil, because I used Baco Bits (fake bacon) to make the potatoes vegetarian. Also, I used 4 tablespoons mozzarella instead of Parmesan. The whole family LOVED these and I'll be making them again! Made for Make My Recipe Tag.

Very nice baked potatoes and I liked the addition of bacon and spinach. I will combine the parmesan with a milder, softer cheese (mozz?) next time as my family is really high on 'ooze' factor. Easy to make and good instructions.
