  1. My wife had a bridge put in and needed soft food. This recipe worked perfected as a main course and I could see making a smaller portion in the future as a side item. Either way. the preparation was simple and I am very pleased with our family dinner tonight.
  2. My potato was HUGE! So I used one potato and halved the recipe. Adjusted the cooking time to my potato size. Worked perfectly! I reduced the amount of onion and could still taste it....so I'd probably reduce it more. Loved the ham and cheese combo, and making a baked potato a full meal! Thanks for sharing! Made for Zaar Stars tag game.
  3. Made 1/2 as written and 1/2 subbing in peppers and broccoli for me. The eggs in this recipe made these taste more like the store bought frozen twice baked potatoes that I love. I'd have to say the original ham/cheese was better then my veggie makeovers. Very good recipe!
  4. Ooooh these were so tasty!! I really enjoyed the flavor! I made 2 large potatoes and 2 small potatoes so I added another egg and a little extra cheese. SO good! My family really enjoyed these. Made for the holiday prmr '09. Thanks
  5. Aaaaaack! I've turned into my mother. I cook everyday, 3 - 4 items everyday...and I love my own cooking. Made for PRMR.
