Caramelized Onion-Stuffed Baked Potato

Print PrintShare with Friends


Recipe comes courtesy of Cooking Light magazine (March 2005 edition). This is definately a different way to stuff a potato and it is very delicious! Only adjustment I made to the recipe was the cooking process of the end potato. Recipe says to microwave the fully stuffed potato to melt the cheese, but I placed them in the oven for about 5 minutes with the other dish I was preparing and it worked just fine. If you like potatoes, definately give this one a try.
