Reviews for Creamy Stuffed Baked Potatoes
"Whole family enjoyed!"
"Definitely something I will make again. The family loves it."
"I've made this recipe a few times and it's always flawless. They're fantastic!"
"Best stuffed potato recipe yet!!!I make it frequently ..."
"These have become a favorite that I make as often as my diet will allow :)"
"My son absolutely loves these potatoes. I load up the oven with potatoes, stuff them, and then instead of popping them back in the oven, I arrange them on cookie sheets in the freezer. Once frozen, I transfer to freezer bags for quick meals or when my son wants a "snack" - he'll eat three in one sitting."
"Very Good! I cheated a little and used microwave potatoes. But after placing the "pulp" back in the shells, I baked it. I came out great and was way faster."
"Very good, very filling. Unless your family is large or you're serving these at a party you'll undoubtedly have leftovers. They heat up just fine in the microwave."
