Twice-baked potatoEdit

This could probably be merged with potato. --Alan del Beccio 20:17, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

Agreed. --From Andoria with Love 20:24, 8 June 2006 (UTC)
If we merged iced coffee with coffee using the rationale that it was the same thing, just prepared differently, why not merge this with potato?
so apparently this has been suggested(and seconded) but nothing was done(unless I am missing something).--31dot 20:31, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
That sounds about right. Jaf 22:40, 6 December 2008 (UTC)Jaf

Actually that was for the merging of twice-baked potato to potato before the baked potato article even existed. Once this article was created, the twice-baked article got merged here. With that said, I oppose. This is a dish and deserves to be merged no more than apple pie deserves to be merged into apple. --Alan 23:03, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

How is that different than iced coffee/coffee?--31dot 23:28, 6 December 2008 (UTC)
Apple pie is also more than just apples. A baked potato is just a potato that is baked.--31dot 23:29, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

First of all, I see no reason why the iced coffee and coffee necessarily had to be merged, as there is apparently a distinction between one-another. Otherwise, unlike coffee/iced coffee, a baked potato is a "specially prepared dish," from a potato, just like an apple pie is a specially prepared dish from apples. Whereas, unlike you analogy, there are no Coffee beans involved. --Alan 23:42, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

That's reasonable, but we should be consistent- if we're not going to merge these two then we should split up the coffee article back the way it was.--31dot 23:57, 6 December 2008 (UTC)
For reference, here is the PfD discussion which ended up as a merge.--31dot 00:01, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
Oppose merge of baked potato with potato. As stated above, one is a specific dish made from the other. --From Andoria with Love 04:53, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
