I grew up in Nebraska as most of you know, there we have a grocery store chain called Hy-Vee, they make some of the best twice baked potatoes. And I am currently living in Houston Tx, and no where close to a Hy-Vee, So for Father's Day 14, I made my own to serve to my amazing hubby and father of three. And I must admit they tasted AMAZING!! (better than Hy-Vee's)Shhh don't tell them I said that! :P
I Hope these find your way to your dinner table soon!
Enjoy

SAVE SOME SCALLIONS AND CHEDDAR CHEESE TO TOP THE POTATOES

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Wash and place your potatoes on tinfoil and sprinkle salt, wrap up tight and place in the oven for 1 hour or until soft to the touch.
2
If short on time you can bake the potatoes in the microwave, 10 minutes on high heat for 2 potatoes, 15 minutes for 4 potatoes. The skins of microwave baked potatoes aren't nearly as crispy, so you may want to rub a little olive oil on them and finish them in a conventional oven at 400°F for 10 minutes.
3
If you are including bacon as one of your mix-ins, while the potatoes are cooking, cook the bacon strips in a frying pan on until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Let cool. Chop up and set aside.
4
Allow the potatoes to cool to touch. Slice the top third lengthwise off the potato. Use a spoon to scoop out the insides, forming a potato "canoe", leaving about 1/4 inch of potato on the skin.
5
Place the scooped out potato, sour cream, cream/milk, butter,bacon,scallions garlic and herbs into a large bowl. Mash with a potato masher.
6
Spoon fillings into the potato shells. Sprinkle with extra toppings.
And bake for additional 15-20 at 375*
