How to Make Twice Baked Potatoes


  1. Wash potatoes well, and put them into your crock pot for 3 hours with ½ cup of water. Cook them on high for 3 hours.
  2. After 3 hours, take the potatoes out with tongs and set on a baking rack to cool for about 10 minutes (so they are cool enough to handle). Then, cut them in half length-wise, and scoop most of the insides out of the skins and empty into a large mixing bowl. (Leave about ?” of the insides in the potatoes for structure.)
  3. Mash the potatoes, then combine with remaining ingredients. I recommend using a wooden spoon to combine the ingredients because the potatoes tend to get stuck in the beaters of an electric mixer.
  4. Spoon the mixture back into the potato skins, or use a piping bag if you have one.
  5. Place the potatoes on a cookie sheet and bake at 350° for 30-45 mins. depending on the size of the potatoes.
