I made these last night for dinner, and while you do have to think ahead a bit (perhaps an hour ahead isn't a lot for most people, but I'm much more of a "I'm hungry NOW, must eat" kind of chick), they were quite good. I skipped on the cheese and instead topped them with sour cream just before eating. will definitely make these again :)


These were great! Of course I tweeked them. I was in the mood for au grautin potatoes but, I didn't need the leftovers. So, here's what I did. Sliced the potatoes width wise, cut the onion in half and sliced thinly. Place potato on foil, put a piece of onion between each slice, then a piece of cheese between each slice ( I used colby & sharp cheddar), then sprinkled with pepper and salt. I then took cream of mushroom soup and spooned in down the length of the potato, poured 1/4 cup of milk over the potatoe and topped it with some slices of butter - Yes I know it is high caleries!! But it was wonderful comfort food and no leftovers. This made a nice cheese sauce to dip the potato slices in. Very tasty. If you are worried about sticking use pam on the foil first.


This is a great way to bake potatoes, however, I thought they needed more flavor. Plus the cheese stuck to the foil. When I make them again, I will add ranch dressing and salt, and maybe not use the cheese.
