If you are looking for the best ever twice baked potatoes recipe, you have come to the right place! I am such a fan of these that I think I make them far too often, but CAN NOT help myself.
My Favorite thing in the summer is a good old BBQ. When I think of summer foods I think of many different things but for me, Twice Baked Potatoes are a must. I love these on the side of my Best Ever Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Recipe!
I have tried many different recipes, but they just never added up to what I thought twice baked potatoes should be. So, I set to work adding a bunch of things and mixing them about to make my own recipe.
These twice baked potatoes are just my favorite side dish to any traditional summer meal! I have served them before at a family BBQ and everyone loved them! In fact, they RAVED about them!
The skin is just the right amount of crispy and the insides of these are just the most amazing amount of creamy. Little Man and Baby girl just gobble these up as much as possible. They are so good!
- 7 Med Baking Potatoes
- 10 Bacon Slices
- 1 1/4 C. Sour Cream
- 3/4 C. Milk
- 4 TBSP Butter
- Pinch Fresh Ground Pepper
- 1 1/2 C. Cheddar Cheese (divided)
- 10 Sliced Green Onions (divided) OR Fresh Chives (Divided)
- Preheat oven to 350 Degrees
- Place potatoes whole in oven and bake for 1 hr & 10 mins.
- Cook the bacon, place on paper towel to cool and drain grease, then crumble and put aside for the filling.
- Allow the Potatoes to cool for 20 Mins prior to scooping out the flesh.
- Cut Potatoes in half and scoop flesh into a large bowl. Add all the ingredients, leaving out the bacon,1/2 the cheese and 1/2 the Green onions/chives. Mix all ingredients together until smooth.
- Fill potato skins with the mixture.
- Top with the bacon, remaining cheese, and a remaining green onion or chives.
- Great Tip: To ensure the potato skins stay in tact, don't scoop all the flesh out. Try to leave a small coating of the flesh on the skin.
- Another Great Tip: If you want the skins to be crispy (I DO) put a thin coating of butter over the potatoes once you have cut them in half.
