Twice-Baked New Potatoes

I've used these rich potatoes as both an appetizer and a side dish. Guests seem to enjoy the distinctive taste of Monterey Jack cheese and basil. These satisfying mouthfuls are perfect for a late-afternoon or evening get-together when something a little heartier is needed. — Susan Herbert, Aurora, Illinois
