Twice Baked Potatoes
Twice Baked Potatoes are one of my family’s favorite side dishes. A baked potato shell is stuffed with light fluffy mashed potatoes, cheese, and of course – bacon!
Servings: 6 Potatoes
- 6 small potatoes
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 tablespoon sliced chives or green onions
- 6 pieces of bacon cooked crisp and chopped or 3 tablespoons bacon bits
- 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese divided
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash potatoes and poke with a fork. Bake potatoes in oven 1 hour or microwave until soft. Allow to cool slightly.
Slice each potato in 1/2 lengthwise. Scoop out the pulp of the potato leaving a 1/8" shell.
In a bowl, mash potatoes, sour cream, butter, garlic powder, salt and pepper until smooth. Add butter milk as needed to create a creamy texture. Stir in chives, bacon and 3/4 cup cheddar cheese.
Fill each skin with the mashed potato filling and top with remaining cheese.
Bake 15-20 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted.
