Twice Baked Potatoes

Are you making steak, chicken, fish, or virtually any other meat for dinner tonight? Well, guess what?! This is a quick and easy recipe that your kids, significant other, and friends will love. I decided to cook up some steaks for dinner tonight and the ingredients in the recipe below are almost always in my cooking cabinet. You will be amazed at how often your family will ask you to make this recipe over and over again.


Twice Baked Potatoes
3 Gals and a Kitchen

2 baking potatoes
1 cup sour cream
2 chopped green onions
1 cup cheddar cheese
3 pieces of bacon, cooked and chopped (optional)
2 TBSP butter
(sprinkle feta on top - my personal fav, but optional)

Preheat oven to 350. Bake 4 potatoes in foil in preheated oven for about 50-60 minutes. Meanwhile, begin to cook bacon evenly until brown in a skillet. Drain on paper towels and chop. Once the potatoes have finished cooking, allow them to cool for 15 minutes or cool to a touch. Slice the potatoes in half lengthwise, use a spoon to scoop out the insides, forming a potato bowl. Place the potato insides into a large bowl, add sour cream, green onions, cheddar cheese, bacon, butter, and salt/pepper. Save some of the toppings to sprinkle on top of the finished product. After all presentation is everything. Mix well using a potato masher or a fork if you do not have one. Spoon the mixture into the potato bowls you created earlier. Place on a large baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes until heated through. Sprinkle extra toppings on the potatoes. Serve immediately.
