Loaded twice baked potatoes

Lynnda Cloutier


to make ahead, prepare this recipe as directed but cover and chill up to 24 hours before baking. Let potatoes stand at room temperature for about 30 minutes and bake as directed. To freeze, prepare recipe as directed before baking. Place potatoes on baking sheet, freeze until firm, wrap in aluminum foil and freeze for up to two months. Remove from freezer and thaw at room temperature for one hour. Bake, uncovered as directed. I made these for Christmas and they were a hit.
