salt to taste
1 1/4 cups
shredded Cheddar cheese
I made these for Easter, but modified the ingredients. After scooping out the potato pulp, I added sour cream and fresh chives. Then I topped them with parmesan cheese. I let them cool, covered them, and refrigerated them overnight. After I pulled the ham out of the oven, I popped these in and everything was ready at the same time. A great make-ahead dish that results in a rather elegant and crowd-pleasing holiday dish.
This recipe is good just the way it is. People need to remember to at least try it the way it was intended before making major changes. I think only after that you should bend the rules.
I use sour cream in lieu of the milk, add shredded cheddar to the potato mixture along with onion, green pepper, real bacon bits and I season with garlic powder and a little black pepper. Fattening, but soooo yummy!
substitute heavy cream for the liquid, mix in about a cup of the shredded cheese with the potatoe mixture and add a little celery salt in the mix too! also when you scoop out the potatoe, put a dish towel in your hand and you can hold the potatoe better, saving it from breaking.
My kids and husband loved this recipe. I made a couple of minor changes to the original recipe. I decreased milk by 1/2 cup and added 1/4 sour cream and mixed shredded cheese into the mashed potato mixture as well as some bacon bits. Filled each potato skin with the mixture and topped it off with some more shredded cheese on top of each potato. My kids are very picky eaters and they both asked if we could have these again!
Update: I have started making a huge batch of these and freezing them in plastic ziplocks. Whenever my 3yo wants a 'baked potato', I take one out and microwave it for 2-3 minutes. Original review: Very classic, kid-friendly! I added more butter than called for, and also sour cream. I also halved the recipe (there are only 4 of us). Great way to stretch a potato! Thanks for the yummy post!
This one will get your kids whining, "Please, Dad. Can't you make twice baked potatoes tonight!" (just like I did Mom when I was their age). We love 'em.
This recipe was great i added bacon to the recipe and sour cream and it came out delicious.
