Few these days ascribe to my preferences for eating, but this is definitely "treat" food.
Low protein, high fat, but favorably, potatoes are quality carbs...but the recipe is still basically "carbs and fat".
I'm betting most of them are tasty, but conscience defers me to better balance in my diet.
I'm probably the only one though.

Unrelated and I don't know the guy that runs this site (he posts on another site I frequent) but there's a lot of good looking stuff in the same ballpark here.

Interesting video as you say high-fat food, My sugar level went up 30 points watching this video LOL. :D I'm sure they were just showing what all you could stick in their but it looked like $30 or $40 worth of fixings for just a few potatoes I hope the fixed more with the leftovers

Man. Looks good.

I'm another that watches my diet pretty carefully, but I can see these the next time I am at my brother's for a family BBQ. It's only about twice a year....

Kinda cool the way you can pick it up and eat it like a hot dog. I'm sure there are things you can do to make this healthier.

Went ahead and made these tonight and they were tasty. We went pretty simple and used sour cream and colby jack cheese in them. One observation though... I'd go with more oval shaped (long and narrow) spuds next time to improve the cheese to potato ratio. Still really good though!

Looks like something we could try at the Northwoods but I sure would not eat them too often.. they look as bad as those bacon-wrapped meatloaf thingies I have seen..just some things I don't eat routinely...

I wouldnt recommend them every week but as a treat food they are good. We made some for breakfast by adding scrambled eggs and mushrooms , yummy

Mine were quite tastey. Stuffed it with Pastrami, Corned Beef, green onions and cheese. My bacon did not come out as crispy.

They sound might good to me. I'm going to try making some.

Might want to turn the heat up a bit.

Oh hey, that is a good idea for the holidays...thanks...

I made enough for leftovers. In the morning sliced them crosswise dropped in skillet then topped with eggs. Just as good the second time.

Probably eats potato bombs because he can.

HUmmmm...maybe I might want to rethink those potato bombs for the holidays and go with something else...:o
