Caramelized Ohio Twice-Baked Potatoes
cooking or olive oil
red onions, thinly sliced
scallions, finely chopped
Rub potatoes with 1 Tablespoon oil, sprinkle lightly with salt. Transfer to large baking sheet.
Bake until tender in the center, about 1 hour 15 minutes.
While the potatoes are baking, heat 2 Tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the red onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and lightly golden brown, about 15 minutes.
Once the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut them in half crosswise. Scoop out the insides, leaving a 1/8 inch border and transfer to a large bowl.
Mash with the sour cream and a bit of salt and pepper. Fold in most of the scallions and all of the onions.
If necessary, slice a thin piece off the rounded ends of each potato so they can stand upright and form a cup.
Transfer the potato skins back to the baking sheet. Divide the filling among the potato halves (about 1/2 cup each) and bake until heated through, about 15 to 20 minutes.
Sprinkle with additional scallions and pepper, if desired.
