Naturally, philly cheesesteaks were the inspiration for these stuffed potatoes. I wanted something heartier than the typical twice baked potatoes with cheese and bacon - something I could serve for dinner - and I happened to have some deli roast beef on hand. Inspiration struck, and the rest, as they say, was history.
The kids really liked these potatoes, and I liked having a fast and easy meal that didn't require a lot of kitchen prep time. If you're a fan of baked potatoes baked in the oven, feel free to use that method. I just like microwaving the potatoes to save time.
