"I have made these potatoes for years and when finished they taste like twice-baked potatoes. Delicious. But I have never seen egg whites in this recipe before and never used them, and low fat cream cheese and sour cream are also a no-no."

"My husband and I had these for dinner tonight. They were great. My husband made them as directed not in the crock pot and it was easy to prepare. Will definitely make them again."
