"Ohhh yeah! YUM! I cut this recipe down to 1 potato & the fixings for me for lunch. I may give my potato a sprinkle of garlic powder and a dab of butter before adding the cheese, mushrooms & bacon. I can't wait to eat! Thanks for sharing!!!"

"I happened to have some leftover brie, so I decided to make this recipe and boy, am I glad I did! It was delicious and my husband commented on how good the potatoes were at least three times. I left out the cremini mushrooms because we don't like them."
