My family went crazy for these!! I used heavy cream and a small amount of milk, I also used a normal package of cream cheese. I also used crushed Ritz cracker on top. My family loved it! I highly recommend this recipe!!

I just made this for my husband and I. WOW, as my husband put it "this is a keeper!" The only change I made was to use some garlic salt and eliminate the sour cream (not my husband's favorite). Oh, sorry I did use Real Bacon Bits instead of bacon. SUPER!

Everyone in my family loved this amazing side dish. The only changes I made to the recipe was leaving out the sour cream and minced chives (food intolerance/allergies).

I made this for a father's day dinner, since it's lower in carbs than most potato dishes and my father is diabetic. My whole family went wild for it - even my kids, who normally don't care for potato skins. I only peeled half of the potatoes and thought the amount of skin was perfect. I also used reduced fat sour cream, reduced fat cheese and center cut bacon to cut some of the fat.

I make this for any get together and I always get asked to bring it again. To make it quick I use bacon bits. Tasted great

I have made this recipe twice in one week now. DELICIOUS. I made some slight modifications: I used a whole bag of new potatoes. Since there were a few more potatoes I added 1/2 cup of butter, 2/3 cup of milk, I also put the chives in with the milk, butter, salt and pepper rather than on top. Also instead of dolloping sour cream, I spread across top like icing. YUM YUM! The company I have had loved it and are requesting this recipe.

Mediocre. Not a lot of flavor. A baked potato with these toppings would be easier and taste better.

This has become one of my favorite recipes! It's a side dish that will go well with almost anything. I leave the peels on the potatoes, and use about 8 medium/large red potatoes. So good!
