Double-Baked Potatoes Recipe

I CAME UP with this recipe when looking for a different way to use leftover baked potatoes. I wanted to do something besides simply frying them or making potato salad, so I found a recipe and added some of my own ingredients. These are the tasty results. —Leonora Wilkie Bellbrook, Ohio
