    Potatoes came out very tender. I added real onions about 2 minutes after I put the potatoes in and they cooked up great. And of course MORE CHEESE!

    These were good. I added chopped onion and some bacon as well as a little more cheese. Serve with some sour cream and you have a deconstructed loaded baked potato.

    This was good and pretty easy. Think I'll add more cheese next time because.....well....cheese!

    The potatoes are great...served with sour cream. I also used Onion Soup Mix instead of minced onions...probably 2-3 Tablespoons.

    Quick and easy. I, too, used chopped onion and added salt. I'll make this again.

    This would also work great with Swiss or Jarlsberg or even Guyere cheese too.... and put some crisp bacon crunched up on top of it. These potatoes would also be great layered with cooked diced or chunked ham Ok, Now I'm hungry. :-)

    Wonderful recipe! Easy to make with ingredients I always have on hand. I substituted 2T of Lipton Onion soup mix instead of the minced onion. My husband asked for a bit more of the onion soup mix next time. Its an easy recipe to adapt to likes of all.

    Who knew such an easy recipe would be so good! I substituted half the butter for olive oil and didn't have cheddar so I used Parmesan which worked wonderfully. This was a hit and I will definitely be making it again!
