"i tried this recipe tonight on my family. we all thought they had good flavor and i loved that they were healthy; however, i feel that i could just wing my own recipe and have just as a good a potato. i really liked them but my dad and boyfriend think they fell flat so i have no fans on my end, sorry."

"Normally twice baked potatoes are rather tasteless and boring, but this recipe is a winner. Filled with flavor and texture you'll definately make it again."
