"I've made these for years but I used instant mashed potatoes since that's usually what I keep on hand anyway"

"Not dry like many twice baked potato dishes are. I left out the onions. It needed a little more flavor so I added a teaspoon of onion salt."

"That's supposed to be 5 star! Can't change it. Made this last night & it is yummy. Halved the recipe for the 2 of us, couldn't wait for company. Cooked the onion with the bacon. Also added a bit of green onion for colour. Will make again."

"I didn't peel my red potatoes, used garlic and onion powder, no onions. Also substituted McCormick Bac'n pieces instead of real bacon & Kraft 4 cheese shredded cheese instead of sharp. We loved it."
