Loaded Twice Baked Potatoes

Welcome to another Christmas series post! If you aren’t aware, Parrish from Life with the Crust Cut Off and I are bringing you one recipe a week for the month of November highlighting Christmas dishes! YUM. Today I have my most favorite way of preparing potatoes! I literally make these about once a week already but I think they would be a great addition to any Holiday get together!

Loaded Twice Baked Potatoes

When I’m making these I figure one half of a potato is good per person, so this recipe I have today serves 4. But, of course adjust to your families eating habits!

Loaded Twice Baked Potatoes, these are the best potatoes I've ever had! Great for a nice family get together, party or any day of the week! Easy, with step by step instructions, recipe from https://ThisSillyGirlsLife.com

How to Bake Potatoes

When baking potatoes, I pre heat my oven to 375 degrees. Wash off the potatoes with a bristle brush (so I can eat the skins, YUM!), pierce with a fork all over, just to break the skin. Then, pop it directly on the oven rack. I start checking them after an hour with a wooden skewer but a small pairing knife or thermometer will do. Once the skewer slides all the way through to the core of the potato with no resistance they are done. For the potatoes pictured here I consider these medium sized and cooked for just under two hours.

Instructions

  • After your potatoes are baked, let them cool on the counter for about 20 minutes.

  • Place insides of potato in a bowl, add half of the bacon, all of the butter, 2 Tbls of sour cream, half of the cheese and salt and pepper to taste. (Taste the mix BEFORE adding additional salt, then season to your taste.)
  • Place this filling back into the potatoes skins, top with the remaining cheese and put back into the oven at 375 degrees until the cheese has melted and it has warmed through. About 5-10 minutes.
  • Top them off with more sour cream, the remaining bacon and scallions, enjoy!

  1. Yum! The last time I was in my hometown visiting my parents, my dad sent me home with a bushel of potatoes that he had harvested. I am pretty much over regular mashed potatoes, so these will be a great change and super easy to make. Thanks!

  2. I absolutely love twice baked potatoes. Yum. I always attempt to make them but I have issues with scooping the potato out of the skin, then I end up just making mashed potatoes. I should attempt them again though. They are so delicious.
