    These were very yummy. I didn't have onion powder on hand so I mixed the sour cream with a little french onion dip. The flavor was amazing. I also baked the shells for about 7-9 minutes because I like mine a little crispier. I will make these again!!

    Delicious! Adds a gourmet touch to baked potatoes. My daughter made these as part of an anniversary celebration dinner. They were an absolute hit. I served them a few days later as part of our New Year's Day dinner...again a hit....I have not tried freezing them but will I am sure in the future.
