I'm surprised more haven't made this. I had a LOT of riced russets on hand, used pulled ham instead of bacon, and scallions instead of chives. We loved it! The texture just past the crunch is identical to a twice baked potato with a less cooking. It's like the best of french fries (crisp exterior) and baked potatoes at the same time. This one the kids asked for the recipe during the meal!
Good, tasty but missing a poached egg on top ;)
