  • Unwrap potatoes and cut in half lengthwise, cutting to, but not through, the bottoms. Fluff potatoes with a fork. Carefully open vegetable packet to release steam. Top potatoes with vegetables and sour cream. Sprinkle with cheese and pine nuts.


A 6-oz. potato is smaller than you think. Be sure you have the right size so they cook in the time called for.
