We made this recipe for Twice Baked Potatoes for the first time over the holidays, and received such rave reviews – we had to share the recipe!
The filling for these potatoes is actually a mix of two types of potatoes – the scooped-out russet potato, plus some sweet potato added in for extra flavor – and we think the mix of the two is fantastic! The potato mixture is then combined with bacon, two kinds of cheeses (sharp cheddar and Mascarpone), butter and scallions. It’s like a fully-loaded baked potato, but creamy on the inside and crisp and golden on the outside!
This dish is pure comfort food and it’s so filling, it could be a meal all by itself. Or served with prime rib, like we did over the holidays, it’s a hearty and delicious side dish. Although the filling can easily be scooped back into the potato skin with a spoon, we used a large pastry bag with a star tip, and piped the filling into the potato to give it a more elegant look for our meal. Either way, you’re sure to get the same rave reviews we did!
