Reviews forBaked Potatoes with Topping
"These potatoes are fantastic! My daughters always want these to compliment their birthday dinners."
"I did the potatoes in the oven, too. Love this!!"
"Excellent recipe, I did bake the potatoes in the oven though because they always shrivel little in the microwave."
"After microwaving potatoes, cut in half, scoop out pulp leaving a thin layer. Mash the pulp with marg. and milk, whipping until smooth. Spoon back in potatoe halves. Then top each potato with 3 tbsp. of butter mixture. Sprinkle with cheese."
