    Loved this! I roasted a head of garlic along with the potatoes and then squeezed that into the potato mixture. (Slice off the top, place on tinfoil, drizzle with olive oil and wrap in the tinfoil before placing in the oven) - 1/29/08

    Absolutely delicious, and I'm not a fan of cottage cheese. For seasoning- I used oregano, paprika, salt, & pepper. I also added a little part skim mozz cheese on top (with the parmesan). Can't wait to make this again - YUMMMMM!! - 1/21/08

    Try the same recipe with zucchini in place of the potato. It's great if your watching your carbs or are a diabetic. Can be wrapped in foil & cooked on the grill. Also, add some ground turkey or chicken to make it a complete meal. - 7/9/09

    These potatoes are so flavorful and creamy. I put the potato insides and other ingredients in my mixer and mixed them to make them a little creamier. They really fluffed up and made extra filling. Everybody liked them, even my husband who hates baked potatoes. - 3/2/09

    Versitle - my husband said, "I think you should make potatoes like this all the time!" My own substitutions include: canola oil salad dressing for margarine, pinch of basil for dill & 1/4 tsp. ground chipotle pepper for hot pepper sauce. My 3-year-old doesn't like potatoes but she wolfed these down! - 1/17/08

    I may have missed this tip along the way since there are sooo many comments, but you can cut some prep time by microwaving the potatoes the first time around - since they go back in the oven they crisp up just fine on the outside. - 12/29/09

    I didnt read through all the comments but a few mentioned the lengthy time in prepping this, and I wanted to mention if you are short on time you can bake a potato in the microwave.
