Is there anything better then potatoes and melted cheese? Not in my book. I love cheese fries, I love cheese on my breakfast potatoes, and best of all I love a good twice baked potato!
I got my love for twice baked potatoes from my mom. They take some time to make, so it was always a special night when we had them alongside catfish, steak, or any special occasion.
When I make someone a twice baked potato, it means I love them. You know why? Because I don't just give these babies away! They are like little treasure of heaven to me.
Well lets get started!
First, rub olive oil and salt all over some Idaho potatoes. Then bake them at 400 degrees for an hour.
Then cut each potato in half. Scope out the insides with a spoon, and place them in a large mixing bowl for the filling.
Get all of ingredients ready for mixing! I use melted butter, sour cream, cheddar cheese, chopped bacon, and chives. You can get creative and add whatever you like (maybe some hot sauce perhaps...)!
Mix all of the filling ingredients together then....
Stuff the skins with that delicious, fluffy, filling mixture! Then bake the stuffed potatoes again for another 15 more minutes.
The cheese should be melted and gooey! Yum!Print
