Twice Baked Potatoes

Twice baked potatoes on ...these are a must try!
Photo and recipe courtesy:

  • 6-8 Baking Potatoes
  • 2 Tbls. olive oil
  • 1 Tbls salt
  • 1/3 half and half or milk
  • 6 Tbls butter
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1-1 1/2  c shredded cheese
  • Bacon bits
  • 1 bunch green onions (chopped thin)
  • Can add more S&P to taste
Pre-heat oven to 400° and line a baking sheet with foil. Prep the potatoes by washing them under cold water. Next pierce the potatoes with a fork several times and then place in the pan. Brush potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle on the kosher salt. Bake potatoes for one hour (These can also be cooked via microwave to shorten the baking time). Allow potatoes to cool.
Cut potatoes in half and then scoop out most of the inside of the potato. Leave a little bit, so the skins don't tear. Mash the inside of the potatoes in a large bowl and then mix in the butter, half and half, sour cream, salt and pepper.
Once the potatoes are mashed, scoop the potatoes back into the skins.
Then top with cheese, bacon and green onions. Bake at 375 for 10-15 min or until cheese is bubbly.
