These well-seasoned baked potatoes are a fun alternative to plain baked potatoes. It's easy to help yourself to just the amount you want, too, since the potato halves are scored into sections. — Barbara Wheeler, Sparks Glencoe, Maryland

"Can't wait to try with thin slices of cheadder cheese in the slices, sprinkle with bacon (if your gutsy baste using melted bacon fat vs. butter. PALEO-ishy!) chives, garlic, salt, pepper and paprika. Adding the cheese 1/2 way through baking, when flopped if preferred method. Can't go wrong. Ever wonder why I spent to much of my adulthood with great grandparents, they didn't buy into over processed, refined food full of higher artificial sugars and fake fats. Humans need fat, the body does not need any carbs for survival. So I say yeah, a body needs healthy fats so an occasional indulgements of jazzy potatoes is good. I have observed several relatives and friends diagnosed with cancers all either eat processed diets is canned pastas, packaged diner kits, sugar and butter substitutes, NEVER smoked tobacco or drunk an alcoholic beverage are the ones who are in recent years diagnosed with cancer."

"i made these twice. First time I didn't like them. They came out too crusty. The second time they were better but just OK. Will try one more time before I toss the recipe."

"have been doing a variation of these for eons, but I put the potatoes face-side down for half the time and then turn over. They seem to do better that way and takes about 30-40 mins. at 375"

"Used these instead of hash browns with eggs and sausage for breakfast. I brushed with olive oil and tweaked the seasonings with a sprinkle of garlic, additional salt and a blend of red, white, black and green pepper. Delish."

"I made these last night for dinner for our family of three adults and they were a hit. I changed up the seasonings a bit, using salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika and parsley and they turned out terrific. I baked them at 375 degrees instead of the 350 since some reported the potatoes not being done enough. However, they were done in thirty to forty minutes at that temperature.."
