A family favorite and so easy. Add anything you like to the filling. My kids like them just as I make them. These are nice for a change over a regular baked potato and so easy.

How to Make ~ Twice Baked Potato ~


  1. Preheat oven 350 degree F.

    Wash & prick potato 3 - 4 times with tines of fork. I then rub with olive oil & roll in salt. Bake for about 1 hour or until cooked through. Remove from oven and let set until cool enough to handle.
  2. Cut the potato in half, lengthwise. With a spoon, scoop out the inside of the potato, leaving roughly 1/4 inch closest to skin.

    Place in a bowl, along with salt, pepper, Parmesan, cream, green onion and mix until creamy. I just used a spatula.
  3. Place the halves of potato on a small baking sheet and fill each halve evenly with mashed potatoes. Sprinkle evenly with cheese and place back into oven. Bake 15 - 20 minute or until heated through and cheese is melted and bubbly.
  4. I then salt & pepper again. Add bacon evenly to each. and add a dollop of sour cream if prefer. Garnish with more green onion and enjoy!

    My kids love these.
