Wow, this tasted very different than I thought it would... in a good way. I guess the mashed vegetables add some sweetness to the dish, and that really worked for me. I think next time I'll add some brown sugar to this, but I'm definitely making this again.

This was pretty good and you feel great knowing it's healthier than a baked potato. I sprinkled the top with grated cheddar before heating in the oven. I'll have to say, coming from the South, it could use a little spice (which I'll do next time) Thanks for posting recipe!

I just started the Weight Watchers diet and tried this recipe. It was really good and made a lot of food for a few points. I added fat-free cheese and that made it even better in my opinion (I love cheese -- if doing the PointsPlus plan, you must add 1 pt for the cheese). Thanks for a keeper recipe, Marsha. I will use it again!
