    Thank you for a wonderful recipe. I made this with Recipe #339365#339365 and Recipe #185499#185499. They were delicious. I have two more left which I froze and will fix with another meal.

    I enjoyed this yummy baked potato with a big salad. I did cut the recipe by a third for just 2 potatoes. Thanks for a different way to fix potatoes! Made for Photo tag. I was lazy and didn't use the piping bag.
