Twice Baked Potatoes
Twice Baked Potatoes are a perfect side dish or appetizer for any occasion! You'll love the cheesy mashed potatoes stuffed into crisp, buttery potato skins.
Poke holes in the potatoes with a fork. Bake the potatoes at 400 degrees for 1 hour. Cut the baked potatoes in half lengthwise. With a spoon, scoop out some of the potato, leaving about ¼ inch of potato inside the skin. Set aside the extra potato that was scooped out.
Brush entire surface of each skin, inside and out, with butter. Place skins on cookie sheet, face up, and broil for 6-8 min.
Use a potato masher to mix remaining potato, sour cream, cheese and bacon bits
Spoon the filling into the skins. Sprinkle shredded cheese and extra bacon bits over the tops.
Broil for about 2 more minutes. Top with sour cream or ranch if desired.
