Reviews for Makeover Twice-Baked Potatoes
"Thanksgiving guests approved! Excellent dish."
"Very tasty. I bake the potatoes ahead of time (or make extra when baking others) and put them in the refrigerator until ready to use. They are easier to handle that way. Leftovers store well in the refrigerator and could probably be frozen if you wanted to do that."
