  1. This was the first recipe I cooked as a wife when we moved into our first home and my family still requests it!
  2. This was good; easy to make and very filling! Can't get much better than that! :) We served with a salad and did what another reviewer suggester...just mixed the hambuger and potato mixture and put it all back in the potato shell. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!!
  3. As soon as I saw Marsha D.'s photos of this recipe I knew I had to try it.:)Since there were only two of us,I cut the recipe in half. As the potatoes were cooling, I browned the hamburger meat and used about 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder,some seasoned salt,pepper,and about 1 teaspoon of instant chopped onion.After removing the potato pulp,I mixed it with 1/2 cup of sharp chedder cheese,salt and pepper to taste,and the milk.Then put the pulp back into the shell,making sort of "nest"to hold the ground beef mixture.Topped the beef with the remaining cheese,baked for about 25 to 30 minutes.The taste was pretty good,but I think that if this is made again,I'm going to add some crushed red pepper flakes to "perk it up a bit" and add a little bit more salt,pepper,and cheese to the potato pulp.Thank you for posting."Keep Smiling:)"
  4. WoW!! We love stuffed baked potatoes and when I seen this recipe I knew I had to give it a try. I did add a few more ingredients to give it more of a cheeseburger taste. I fried hamburger meat in alittle bacon grease with some chopped up onion and added 1Tbs of A-1 steak sauce. After mixing potatoes and meat mixture together I added 1tsp of catsup, mustard and dillweed and than the cheese. After adding to potato shells I topped with Monterey Jack Cheese. We both loved these potatoes!! :) Thanks for sharing your recipe!
  5. Really good. I left out the olive oil and used chopped onion, sauteed along with the hamburger, rather than garlic - it seemed more "cheesburgerish" to me. Also added a little worcestershire sauce, just as I would to a broiled burger. Since I'm basically lazy, I just mixed all the stuff together and put it into the potato skins, and then topped with a bit more cheese. Will definitely make again. Thanks!
