I've used these rich potatoes as both an appetizer and side dish. Guests seem to enjoy the distinctive taste of Monterey Jack cheese and basil. These satisfying mouthfuls are perfect for a late-afternoon or evening get-together when something a little heartier is needed.

Twice-baked potaotes may take some time to prepare, but we know the residents really appreciate our efforts. This side dish pairs well with a variety of meaty entrees and is always a welcome sight on the holiday table.
"Tuna lovers will find this a real treat," assures Rosella Peters of Gull Lake, Saskatchewan. "My husband and I enjoy it as a nice change from the ordinary baked potato. Along with a salad it makes a simple lunch or dinner."
These hearty potatoes are fully loaded. They can be changed up a zillion different ways, but this is my favorite, featuring three kinds of cheese plus cream cheese and cottage cheese. —Kathleen Gill, Pahrump, Nevada
A slimmed-downed version of this classic by using substituting 1% milk, turkey bacon and reduced-fat cheddar cheese. Try this version and see if you family can tell difference.Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
