    I made this for dinner tonight and served it with a green salad and fresh corn on the cob. I substituted broccoli for the red pepper. Unfortunately, the potato mixture was very dry even with the cheese. In the future I’ll add milk and butter when mashing to make them creamy. These are basically twice baked potatoes and any time I’ve had those the texture is more like mashed potatoes.

    Made these for my family today… turned out great! I agree with a comment below, potato was kinda dry, but it was still decent if you added some spices and or lemon juice. The melted cheese helped greatly, but I’ll admit I ate this whole thing with sauce/mustard for added wetness/taste.

    But yeah, keep up the great recipes!
