Fennel-Stuffed Twice-Baked Potatoes Recipe

Publisher Photo
In my opinion, nothing is as versatile as the potato. I recently decided to try cooking with fennel and wanted to combine the flavor in a great baked potato. The cheese, fennel, garlic and pine nuts lend this appealing side dish delicious Italian flair. —Pam Ivbuls, Omaha, Nebraska

Directions

  1. Scrub and pierce potatoes. Bake at 375° for 1 hour or until tender.
