I like these potatoes because they're so versatile. They can be served alongside a fancy entree when company comes...or they can stand as the main course with a salad for an easy supper. Either way, they're wonderful. My family loves them.—Debbie Jones, California, Maryland

"Although twice baked potatoes always takes some time, this is an awesome recipe. My husband and brother-in-law had more than their share and loved every bit of it."
