A loaded baked potato without the skin! You have to try it! This QUICKLY became a family staple. It is a must at all holiday dinners.

All I could really taste in this dish was the cheese. I will not make again, it was heavy and rather unimpressive. The dish did poof up nicely while cooking and looked impressive, but other than that, I didn't find much to recommend it.

the only thing I would do different is cut the cheese in really small dice so it would melt more my wife like it. and so did I

Yum; loved this Raquel! Based on what I had in the house, I had to make a couple of changes. I made mock sour cream by running fat free cottage cheese and lemon juice thru the food processor and because I'm not a huge processed cheese fan, I decided on parm instead. Also added some seasonings, sprinkled more cheese on top along with a bit of paprika for color. Thanks so much!!

This is not traditional Potatoes Romanoff and please skip the "imatation cheese" (aka Velveeta) for some high quality cheddar and leave the potatoes a bit lumpy. It won't poof as much, but will add texture.

This recipe is fantastic. I made for Christmas dinner and everyone liked it. It was fairly quick and easy and actually I made it ahead and put in fridge, then baked right before dinner. I used Velveeta cheese and put a little grated Cheddar on top. I omitted the green onion and used a little onion powder because my family don't all like green onions. Excellent recipe!

Potatoes Romanoff have been a family staple at holiday meals for years. The potatoes need to be boiled then cooled then grated - skin on (so use left over boiled potatoes or boil the day before). Grating instead of mashing gives it a fluffier texture and makes it less dense. Also, switch it up by adding grated aged cheddar or Gruyere. However, cubing processed cheese does this tasty dish a huge disservice because the cheese won't evenly melt throughout the dish. Finally, I'm making it tomorrow for Cdn Thanksgiving. I'm going to add some crumbled blue cheese in with the sour cream to give the dish some extra zing!

This was an after thought for a dinner party we had, now it's all anyone wants us to make!!! I added Garlic salt, and we left the skins in. I also melted the cheese in the Microwave first.
