Story-Judy served this at the Thanksgiving dinner 2011. A new and easy way to serve baked potatoes. I made them for a Sunday dinner and it worked well to have them baking while we were at fellowship meeting. We put the finishing touches on the potatoes while the salmon and asparagus baked. The meal was topped off with caramel apple pie...delicious  :)
