One potato...two potato...this recipe is doubly wonderful as far as spud lovers are concerned. I have a reputation at home and at work for trying out new recipes. Everyone is glad I took a chance on this one. -Sherree Stahn, Central City, Nebraska.

Great presentation!! But made some changes.. I sliced them in half horizontally...I used cream cheese instead of sour cream which would've made it to watery...I also added green onions... Tasted yummy!! I'm adding this to my list of favorites!! thanks! Read More

I made these potatoes both savory and sweet. I made the baking potatoes like suggested but for the sweet potatoes i mixed butter, brown sugar and a little bit of nutmeg and it was Great! Read More

This is a wonderful recipe, my family raved! I did reduce the recipe to serve 4, decreased the relative amount of sour cream and omitted the milk as the potatoes were already quite moist. I also microwaved the potatoes to reduce prep and cooking time. Thanks Sherree for submitting this recipe! Read More

I made this recipe a while back and was so happy to find it here as I had lost the original. This is very tasty and it looks amazing when done. I am making these for Christmas dinner this year. Read More

These potatoes make a great presentation, and my family was excited to see something new and different on the holiday table this year. As for my personal taste, if I made them again I would use smaller potatoes than the ones I used, and I would also use different ingredients for both the white and sweet potatoes. I like the presentation, I just felt the potatoes could have been jazzed up a bit more. Thanks for your recipe Sherree! Read More
