“Everyone will love these - and they're a cinch to make! Scoop out potato shells, and bake until crisp. Fill them with a yummy mixture of shredded cheddar cheese, Bick's Sweet Mix and chopped cooked bacon. Bake until the cheese has melted and serve with a sour cream and horseradish dip. Delicious!!”
