Easy and good. Feel free to add any ingredients or spice that you like. I like to make extras, freeze wrapped in foil and add the cheeses later when potatoes are thawed and reheated.

SIMPLY MARVELOUS! Company's coming...NUTZ! Decided on an easy meal, grilled rib eye steaks, tossed salad/seasoned oil/vinegar dressing and these marvelous twice baked potatoes with a delicious cabernet sauvignon. Irish Coffee's for dessert. We all had great fun, wonderful company and tasty food...what more could you ask for? The first time I followed the recipe to the letter...received WILD raves. The second time (for company) I sauteed minced elephant garlic in the butter and used sour cream instead of the milk...once again, many WILD raves and hollers for seconds! Thanks for sharing.

Barbara, you did it...these were wonderful! I didn't have romano or parmesean cheese so I used cheddar and jack together and it was great. I used alot of fresh cooked bacon in and on top of the mixture. Thanks for posting this yesterday when I asked for recipes...its a keeper!
