Baked Potatoes Are Good, But Twice-Baked Potatoes Are Even Better! by 30Seconds Food

Baked Potatoes Are Good, But Twice-Baked Potatoes Are Even Better!

Instead of mashed potatoes or plain ol' baked potatoes, surprise your family with these fun twice-baked potatoes. They make a satisfying side dish or an easy appetizer.

You'll need:

  • 4 potatoes, baked and cooled slightly 
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 5-6 strips bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese (or your favorite)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped (optional)

Here’s how to make them.

  1. Cut each baked potato in half. Scoop out the center, leaving the shell intact. Put the potato you’ve scooped out into a bowl and put the shells on a baking sheet.
  2. Add all the remaining ingredients to the potato. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Spoon back into the potato shells.
  3. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 20 minutes. Top with more cheese before baking, if desired.
