  • Season with salt and pepper.

    Sampled as it was going together. It's going to be good. All ready to bake tomorrow.

    Very good. My first baked mashed potato recipe.

    Made it again. No Fontina so I used a combo of Parmesan, Monterrey Jack, and cheddar. Here's a pic for you.

    Made these last night and they were outstanding...The best twice baked I've ever had...I messed up and added the chives to the potatoes and used the parsley for garnish...Also rebaked them in their own skins..Didn't effect the taste at all though...Will definitely be making these again..:)
