"Delicious! I tripled the recipe, using an 8 oz package of cream cheese. May try doing it as a casserole next time rather than the individual potatoes."

"Mmmm! So good and smooth! Microwaving first certainly cuts down on energy use (and heating up kitchen), but either way is good for the first step. I convection bake for the "2nd baking." A sprinkling of crumbled bacon on top and its heaven. Really goes well with barbequed steak and a nice fresh salad."

"REALLY GOOD! Cut down the time by first cooking the potatoes in the microwave and then finishing in the oven."

"These were really good but why why WHY don't folk cook these first in the microwave and then once they're filled then in the oven? I tried AGAIN to do it all in the oven and my potatoes NEVER cook properly this way (or not until they're completely hard on the outside) no matter how many pricks and slits I make in them. But they were quite good despite the filling not being as smooth as I was hoping. Next time I'll do the first part of the cooking in the microwave - much quicker too. I used herb & garlic cream cheese and did add some extra seasonings too. Overall these were good."

"this was a very creamy tasty twice baked potatoe - I just tweaked it a little bit: 1/2 and 1/2 (had some left over from another recipe), a little shredded cheddar, and a little more seasoning (garlic powder/onion powder/pepper and salt) - family loved!"
