Twice Baked Potatoes
TWICE BAKED POTATOES
4 medium sized potatoes
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
1/2 cup cheddar cheese (divided use)
1/4 cup sliced scallions (you can use chives)
1/3 cup chopped cooked bacon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wash potatoes and dry them. Rub a little vegetable oil on the potatoes and then bake for 45 minutes to 60 minutes or until the potatoes are done (cooking time vary on size of potato). Cut the top third off of the potato. Place the top meat of the potato into a bowl, and scoop the inside of the potato out. Be sure to leave about 1/4 to 3/8 of an inch around the edge of the potato. Complete with all remaining potatoes.
Add warmed butter, sour cream, salt, and pepper to the potatoes. Blend until the potatoes mixture is smooth. Add half of the cheese, half of the scallions, and half of the cooked bacon into the potato mixture. Then fill the potato boats with the potato filling. Fill the potatoes generously with the potato filling. Top the filled potatoes with cheese. Turn the oven onto broil and then broil the potatoes until the cheese turns golden brown. Top the twice baked potatoes with remaining scallions and bacon.
