These were very tasty and my husband loved them.The calorie count is not to difficult to calculate. One average baking potato = 164. 1/2 tbsp. butter = 50. 1/4 cup grated cheddar = 88. 1/2 tbsp. grated Parmesan = 44. Grand total for one of these potatoes is 346 calories. Maybe not something you'd want to indulge in on a daily basis, but once in a while won't kill you.
