    Rich and Creamy Twice-Baked Potatoes

    1 review

    My mom, Lynda, is a marvelous cook. I’m proud to say she taught me everything she knows, especially during my teenage years when we spent long hours together in the kitchen. She often made these twice-baked potatoes when my sister, Dina, and I were growing up. They feed a crowd and are just as good re-heated the next day. —Cathy Gross, Taste of Home Online Community
