I came up with this recipe because I wanted to add flavor to plain baked potatoes. I combined several ideas, experimented and ended up with this stuffing. It's so hearty that these potatoes can be a meal by themselves, accompanied by a tossed salad or fruit salad. -Margaret Allen, Abingdon, Virginia

"I would make this with turkey sausage and fat free sour cream to reduce calorie content. Otherwise, way too many calories for one meal."
