Twice Baked Potatoes
Source of Recipe
great "pattern" recipe because it can be adapted to suit individual tastes.
List of Ingredients
3 large baking potatoes, washed
1/2 cup sour cream
1/3 cup milk
Bake your potatoes either in the oven or for about 7 minutes in the microwave. Don't forget to poke holes in the potatoes with a fork or you'll have a big mess. When potatoes are done(tender inside), let them cool for about 20 minutes. Cut each potato in half lengthwise. With a knife, cut potato away from skin, being careful not to pierce the skin of the potato with the knife. Use a spoon to scoop out the rest of the potato, leaving a thin layer of potato on the skin. place scooped out potato in a small mixing bowl. Add sour cream and milk to potato. Mash well, until creamy. Then stir in any or all of the following:
1/4 cup ranch dressing
1/2 cup bacon bits
1/2 to 3/4 cup shredded cheese(cheddar, mozzarella, monteray jack)
1/4 cup chives
1/4 cup chopped onion
These are just a few suggestions. Use your imagination and put anything you want in your potato. Arrange potato skins on a baking sheet. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Scoop potato mixture into skins, until over stuffed. Bake in oven for about 15 minutes or until browned on top. Makes 6 servings.
