Reviews for Fancy Baked Potatoes
"This was my first attempt at twice baked potatoes and we found them bland. Even with added butter it just was no match for a regular baked potato."
"Very good! I sprinkled some shredded parmesan cheese on top before baking for an extra special addition!"
"These eye-appealing potatoes make diners go ooh & aah! And they taste as good as they look. This recipe makes the easiest twice-baked potatoes I've ever tried, and now I think my family would be disappointed if I made them any other way."
