I loved my mom's twice baked potatoes but when I tried making it I had trouble with the skins. I decided to try it this way and it has my mom's seal of approval!

She used to use sour cream but we sure love cream cheese now days.

Will post a photo the next time I make this!

How to Make Twice Baked Mashed Potatoes


  • 1Wash potatoes, pat dry, pierce about 8 times per potato with a fork and wrap each one in foil.
  • 2Bake potatoes at 400 degrees for about an hour. Times will vary depending on size, check doneness after 1 hour: a fork should be easily inserted through the center of potato when done. If they are still hard, bake another 30 minutes and check again.
  • 3While the potatoes are cooking, rinse and chop up about 1/4 cup of chives.
  • 4Line 2 paper towels on a large dinner plate, lay down 6 slices of bacon in a single layer, top with 2 more paper towels and cook in the microwave for about 6 minutes.
  • 5When potatoes are done, let them cool off for a few minutes, then remove potatoes from skin and put the insides into a mixing bowl.
  • 6Mash up the potatoes a bit, using a fork or masher.
  • 7Add salt and pepper to your liking.
  • 8Add butter and milk, mix together with potatoes.
  • 9Mix cream cheese in by hand or use a mixer.
  • 10Crumble the cooked bacon into the mixture. Mix the bacon and chives into the potatoes.
  • 11Spray a glass pan with non-stick cooking spray. I use a 9x13 pan for 10 potatoes, use a smaller size if you use less ingredients.
  • 12Spread a thin layer of the potato mixture across the pan (about 1/4 of the mixture).
  • 13Mix 1 cup of shredded cheese to the rest of the mixture.
  • 14Spread the rest of the mixture in the pan, top with the rest of the cheese.
  • 15Do not cover, bake in oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Cheese should be melted and a little bubbly.
