Great Cheesy Potatoes

Top Review by Bergy

This is an excellent recipe! A little trick I use is to put the potatoe shells in the oven before stuffing them for a few minutes so they get quite crisp and then fill them and continue as in your recipe. Thanks for reminding me I haven't made these for some time
