My kids loved these but I did make some minor adjustments. I "baked" my potatoes in the microwave instead of the oven. Once scooped I sprayed the potato skins with cooking spray so they would crisp a little when later baking. I needed to add more milk than what was called for to get a creamy and fluffy consistency. I just added milk a little at a time until the consistency was correct. I also salted to taste.

These were SO good! I was licking the bowl and couldn't stop snacking on the filling. I baked 4 potatoes, took out the filling of all 4, but only used 2 potatoes to fill back up (so that the filling would be nice and thick, piled up high!) I also threw in a small handful of sharp cheddar cheese after mixing it together. Oh, I completely forgot to add the doesn't even need it! It's so rich from the cream cheese you won't miss it! You could add additional toppings like bacon and sour cream if you want to go the extra mile, but again, it doesn't even need it! Tasty!

I made these substituting heavy cream for milk (I had some leftover that I needed to use) and Mascarpone cheese for cream cheeese (again, it's what I had on hand). Simple, easy to make, and absolutely delicious. I love that you don't need a lot of ingredients to make something to incredibly good.

This was a fantastic recipe for baked potatoes!! I had already used all my cream cheese to make cheesecake so I had to add more milk to make it creamy, about 1/2 cup total. Also for some extreme flavor I added 1 1/2 tbsp of minced garlic, 1 tbsp of parsley. I baked 4 potatoes so I can have really full potato skins, but I was still able to have enough remaining over to use as a side for next day dinner menu. Added some shredded sharp cheddar cheese, sour cream and scallions to the top with some steak gravy. Delicious!!

I believe these were the best twice baked potatoes I've ever had. I did modify them slightly by adding two cups of shredded cheddar (I made four potatoes though) and I used the entire thing of cream cheese (8oz) instead of the 6oz that it would be for doubling the recipe. I also know I used more than two Tbsp of milk, probably more like four. I then topped the potatoes with some shredded cheddar and baked. They were so amazing! We have tried so many twice baked potato recipes and this one is the winner!!!

I made these tonight for supper. Had my daughter and grand daughter (2 years old) over for dinner and thought that I'd make these. I added some real bacon bits to the potato mixture before putting them into the oven.....I was told that these were excellent. I'd make this again, for sure.

These were delicious! I only made two, so I microwaved them and followed the recipe exactly after that. It seems that the serving size is nice size baking potato is good for two people. Thanks for the great recipe!
