My husband LOVES these potatoes. The potatoes are baked and then scooped out. Mix potatoes with shredded cheddar and the 'secret' zing- sour cream and onion dip. Goes great with a grilled steak!

I didn't have any onion dip so I added sour cream and green onions instead. Then of course butter, and lots of shredded chedder. I piped the mixture back into the skins then sprinkled a bit of paprika over each one. Beautiful and delicious! Read More

I served this dish and only 1 person ate the whole potato. Most just picked at it. Too strong of an onion taste too much cheese. I love all the ingredients in this recipe but I was very disappointed and won't be making this again. Read More

Awesome and if you don't have the prepared dip, use one 500 ml (16 0z) tub of light sour cream and one pkg. of onion soup mix, let sit to absorb flavors and add cheese. Great and really hold the heat. Read More

My husband loved them too. I never would have though about using onion dip but it wouldn't have been nearly as good without it! Great recipe! Read More

This tasted SO good! It does make a ton of filling though. I had to pile it on top of the hollowed out potato and still had a bit left over. I didn't put it all on because I thought the filling would get melty and make a mess but it didn't. So next time I'll just pile it all on =) Also I first baked my potatoes in the microwave and then put them in the oven for the second cooking. It worked perfectly fine and cut the cooking time in half. Read More

The recipe will be wonderful I'm sure but photo number one should probably be replaced with a better one. That's not so appetising I'm afraid. Read More

Nice idea but the wrong flavor profile for baked potaotes. There is a reason why butter sour cream cheddar cheese and chives cannot be improved on and this is not an improvement. Read More

These were good; I liked them more than my husband did. I added pepper. I will make them again but probably use sour cream and my own seasonings to cut down on the sodium. Read More
