Over the last month or so the hubby and I have been buying and eating a LOT of potatoes, and as far as I am concerned there is no potato dish that isn’t a good potato dish and Twice Baked Potatoes happen to be one of my favorite ways to eat potatoes!
We made these delicious potatoes twice in a week and then I thought why just make them with bacon and green onions, why not make different ones, and so we bring you a new daily event this week! Our first Potato-Palooza! We will be posting a new Twice Baked Potato or other potato recipe every day this week! We hope you have as much fun making them as we did!
Let us know what you think of our Twice Baked Potatoes and comment below with any questions/suggestions! Be sure and sign up for our Newsletter where we will be posting and sending out recipes we are going to make and giving you the opportunity to give us suggestions for what we should make next! Enjoy!
Twice Baked Potatoes
Recipe Type: Appetizer
Prep time: 1 hour
Cook time: 20 mins
Total time: 1 hour 20 mins
8 baking potatoes, washed
3 tablespoons canola oil
2 sticks salted butter
1 cup bacon bits
1 cup sour cream
1 cup Cheddar or Jack cheese
½ cup whole milk
2 teaspoons seasoned salt
1 tbsp black pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Place the potatoes on a baking sheet.
Rub them with the canola oil and bake for 1 hour, making sure they’re sufficiently cooked through.
Slice the butter into pats. Place in a large mixing bowl and add the bacon bits and sour cream.
Remove the potatoes from the oven.
Lower the heat to 350 degrees F.
With a sharp knife, cut each potato in half lengthwise.
Scrape out the insides into the mixing bowl, being careful not to tear through the skin, you need it to hold together!
Lay the hollowed out potato skins on a baking sheet.
Smash the potatoes into the butter, bacon and sour cream. Add the cheese, milk, seasoned salt, green onions and black pepper to taste and mix together well.
Fill the potato shells with the filling. I like to fill the shells so they look abundant and heaping.
Top each potato with a little more grated cheese and put them back in the oven until the potato is warmed through
