Bacon ‘n’ Cheese Stuffed Potatoes

Here's my creamy and rich version of twice-baked potatoes. Always a treat, these stuffed potatoes go very well with the Chicken Cordon Bleu for my holiday dinner. —Merle Dyck, Elkford, British Columbia

    As I am sure you can tell by the ingredients, this recipe is a winner. It looks more elegant than a standard baked potato, and it tastes great, too. I did not change anything except I sprinkled paprika on the finished product.

    The shells are very fragile difficult to get them too thin without tearing. However, they absolutely tasted delicious, no matter mine did not look picture perfect

    Always make extra and wrap in plastic wrap and then in freezer bags. When I need a side just pop in oven till heated. Tastes just as good as the first day.
