Twice Baked Potatoes are just about the easiest comfort food to make. Just a step beyond really good mashed potatoes, and so so yummy. The craving set in last weekend.. and it's so worth the extra time.
First, bake your potatoes at 400 degrees for about an hour. While they're in the oven, grab some sour cream, butter, grated cheddar cheese, green onions, and fry up some bacon.
Combine butter, sour cream, cheddar cheese, and bacon in a mixing bowl. Leave a bit of bacon and cheddar to the side to top the potatoes at the very end.
Now, cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and grab a dish towel. They are HOT! Gently with a spoon, carve out the potato and add it to the mixing bowl. Be careful not to tear the skins.
Grab some black pepper and seasoned salt and give the bowl a healthy dose.
Add in some chopped green onions, and start mashing. Pardon my bootleg mixing tong.. my potato masher went missing.
Now load up those potato skins. I used two baking potatoes, and ended up with 2 twice baked potatoes. In other words.. fill them up.. don't try to skimp and get 4 servings since you have 4 empty potato skin shells.
Top with the remaining bacon bits and shredded cheddar. Pop back in the oven for about 15 minutes.
Enjoy every bite! They are so good.
