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!

Vert tasty and creamy. I ended up using half french onion dip for the cour cream as I ran short but it worked great. Everyone raved and asked me to make these again soon. I think I will too!

Made this in memory of HEP MEP and for the cook-a-thon in her honor. These were the basic twice baked potato. I sliced my potatoes in half and scooped out the center and placed in bowl as stated in recipe. I than added alittle more milk ( I used whipping cream) than 5 Tablespoons, I wanted them creamy. The flavor was alright, I felt it needed a bit more flavor but all in all they were good.
