These were very good and alittle different from most twice baked potatoes. The flavor of the onion and bell peppers was the nice change. I used cheddar cheese inside the mixture and Monterey Jack Cheese for the top of the potatoes. I also used alittle more whipping cream (in place of the milk. We enjoyed these and will be making again :) Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This was delicious! I loved the addition of onion and green pepper. I used bacon bits instead of real bacon. Thanks Beckpen! Oh, and I microwaved the potatoes the first time.
