Twice Baked Potatoes Recipe
I’ve been making these with my Mom and Gramma ever since I can remember. I posted my recipe a few years ago here, but I have changed the way I cook them to make them just a little bit better. ;) I have such fun memories cooking with my Gramma during the holidays. If I had it my way, they would BE the meal…they are just that good. ;)
Using my best tip for baking potatoes really takes these potatoes over the top! I love the skin when it has the added salt. Seriously, if you haven’t tried these yet you have got to make them!

The BEST twice baked potatoes recipe - One of my all time favorite side dishes! They make the perfect appetizer and are a true crowd pleaser! So easy and yummy!
- 6 Baking Potatoes
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt
- *For filling:*
- 1/3 cup half and half
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 cup shredded cheese
- Bacon bits
- 1 bunch green onions chopped thin
- Can add more S&P to taste
Pre-heat oven to 400° and line a baking sheet with foil. Prep the potatoes by washing them under cold water. Next pierce the potatoes with a fork several times and then plan on the pan. Brush potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle on the kosher salt. Bake potatoes for one hour. Allow potatoes to cool.
Cut potatoes in half and then scoop out most of the inside of the potato. Leave a little bit, so the skins don’t tear. Mash the inside of the potatoes in a large bowl and then mix in the butter, half and half, sour cream, salt and pepper.
Once the potatoes are mashed, scoop the potatoes back into the skins.
Then top with cheese, bacon and green onions. Bake at 375 for 10-15 min or until cheese is bubbly.
Notes: I usually end up only filling 10 potato skins. I like to fill them to the top, so I will usually discard two of the skins.
