I received this recipe years ago from a friend. It's a delicious new twist to a baked potato. I recently served these potatoes to visiting relatives from Norway, and they were a big hit. I love to cook and even wrote my own cookbook several years ago. -LaVerna Mjones, Moorhead, Minnesota

"So simple but so delicious. A great easy new spin on baked potatoes. Add butter and sour cream toppings for a loaded potato!"
