Twice Baked potatoes are actually very easy, regardless of what my brain has been telling me for years. In fact, they are almost effortless… well, that may be a stretch. If you can make mashed potatoes then you can make twiced baked potatoes.
Here are 4 easy steps to making your very own twice baked potatoes:
Wash potatoes and allow to dry. Rub with olive oil and season with salt.
Bake in a 350 degree oven oven for 1 hour (or you could cook them easily in the crockpot). Allow to cool slightly.
Slice the potatoes in half and spoon out the insides. Mash them like you normally would. (be creative – mix in some sour cream, or some garlic salt, or cream cheese, or ranch dressing… get wild!!)
Spoon the mixture back into the shells. (You can even top with cheese and/or bacon -YUM!). Then bake for an additional 15 minutes until warm and delicious!
It really is that easy to make your very own twice baked potatoes.
Stay tuned… on Wednesday, I’ll let you know how to freeze your twiced baked potatoes for an even easier side dish!
