Can be cooked in 4 hours on high heat or cooked all day on low heat while you do other things. Just enjoy them at dinnertime. Check out my suggestions in my article Baked Potato Comparisons in the Article Section of our main site.

I have tried several ways to make this recipe and it is always a great hit. I have even added in some spinach, and it is still delicious. You can also try adding in a nice ham or beef cut for a change from ground beef.
