Twice-Baked Potatoes

READY IN: 2hrs 40mins
Recipe by HEP MEP

These are my favorite. I think the American cheese makes for a creamier texture. I believe I found this in a BH&G recipe book eons ago. I upped the amounts of ingredients to suit my own personal tastes.

Excellent potatoes, used Dutch cheese and added a crushed garlic clove. Teamed these up with your Fried Breaded Pork Tenderloin recipe #49465. Thanks MEP!
