    Soo good! This is going to be added to my x-mas menu this year. be sure to chop your onion as finely as possible so you don;t get any crunchy bits. I stuffed my 4 year old son's without the spinach and he loved them too. Don;t be afraid of the spinach though. it is a very mellow flavor. Also, don;t bother with wisking the milk into the cream cheese. I just put the cream cheese into the bowl and scooped the hot potato onto it to melt, then added everything else and stirred it up. super yummy!

    I've been making this recipe for years and it is always a crowd pleaser. It's great for lunch too. I freeze them, they come out a little soggy but still tasty.

    Love it! It was easy and my whole family loved it--even my picky toddler. Had a friend over who also raved about it and his toddler liked it as well! YUM!

    Excellent. I enjoyed the spinach with the potatoes and guests wanted seconds. I used buttermilk and added extra to make them really smooth and creamy, and I doubled the salt. Otherwise, a good recipe. Will definitely make again.

    These had great flavor. The only reason I didn't give it 4 stars is because it isn't quite fancy enough for company.

    Skip the spinach. You'll be much happier. I made 1 with the spinach and 2 without. The one's without the spinach got wolfed down. The one with spinach just didn't taste as good. Like it toned down the cheese flavor. Next time I'll go with a little broccoli.

    These were very good. To lighten these up a bit, I substituted fat-free milk for the 2% and omitted the cheese on top. They were still delicious, with lots of cheesy flavor. Next time, I might consider adding bacon bits to the potato mix (so much for lightening things up!) or maybe some ranch dip mix to give it a unique flavor. Highly recommended!

    We really liked this recipe and will make again. Next time I will leave out the onions.

    Yum! What a fun way to shake up potatoes as a side dish. I subbed in sour cream as other reviewers suggested and added a sprinkle of bacon. I made half with spinach and half with broccoli, and both were a success. I grated the onion instead of chopping to avoid chunks of raw-ish onions. I'm keeping this one in rotation at my dinner table.

    Easy and yummy. I also like to sub roasted broccoli. It's great as a main dish with a side salad. To save time, I usually "bake" them the first time in the microwave, then finish up in the oven so the skins get crispy.

    Absolutely delicious and super easy. I used the microwave short-cut and was a bit concerned when the potatoes came out a bit wrinkly. However, after restuffing and baking them, you would never know the difference. It really helped cut down on the cooking time. I did stick with russett potatoes, though I usually prefer other kinds. For this kind of recipe, they really work best. Don't skimp on the onion or cheese. They add wonderful flavor!
