Re-baked Potatoes

These started out as breakfast for Christmas morning. I added all the goodies that I liked on a baked potato. Another great thing is that this can be made ahead of time. One year I made a casserole with the extra mixture I had. Pair with Gallo® Family Vineyards Sonoma Reserve Chardonnay.—Taste of Home Cooking School
