Turn a baked potato into a light meal in minutes with this creamy and delicious tuna topping from Bobby Taylor in Michigan City, Indiana. Serve this tasty twist on twice-baked potatoes with a leafy green salad for a lovely, spur-of-the-minute lunch or late-night supper. MAKE IT EASY: For make-ahead convenience on busy weekdays, Bobby Taylor suggests you prepare the potatoes, wrap tightly in foil and refrigerate for up to two days. When needed, unwrap and place on a baking sheet in a preheated 350-degree oven for 30 minutes or until heated through.
