Here you go…another “comfort food” recipe; my favorite kind of food to make and eat! Twice Baked Potatoes are a dish most everyone has had at one time or another. The difference between one recipe and another is the filling. The skin of the potato is the container with a filling of just about anything you want to include. Most of us have enjoyed a filling of creamy mashed potatoes with cheddar cheese and bacon. With some creativity, there are so many other delicious ingredients you can add to the mashed potatoes to enjoy a delicious side dish or a meal. Pair this potato with our Grilled Lamb Chops for a Gr8 supper!
For Anna and Vince’s “Las Vegas” themed Great 8 Dinner, I brought twice baked potatoes. I decided to change it up a bit and bring boats of creamy mashed potatoes with goat cheese and scallions and topped with parmesan cheese.
These potatoes can be made ahead of time and baked the second time, hence “twice baked,” right before serving. The second baking crisps the potato shell, warms the insides, and melts the cheese on top. This recipe is for 8 potatoes but you could easily cut it in half or double it for a crowd.
So enjoy this super simple, super yummy, make-ahead, feed a crowd recipe!
This is the nifty cake decorating tool that I used to add the potato mixture to the top of the potatoes to make them look more decorative.
