Twice Baked Potatoes

I would say we are huge potato fans in our house!

We like them baked, wedged, fried or even as a soup.  But no matter what way we have them I still enjoy eating them.

I recently made these Twice Baked Potatoes because they looked good and easy enough to make and the perfect side dish to any meal.  I love how I was able to make the baked potatoes the night before.  I just added them to the oven as I was cooking and when they were all done I tossed it all together and placed in a baking dish and placed in the fridge.  All I had to do when I got home from work was to simply toss them in the oven.

 These are so creamy and full of flavor.  To top it off bacon is involved and I can never get enough bacon!

  4. Hey, I recently made twice baked sweet potatoes and I actually boiled them before baking them-I wonder if that would take less time? (I just always feel like baking potatoes takes so long)…or maybe it’s the same…these sound delicious though. I’ve never had just a regular twice baked potato. The other day was breaking new taste barriers;)
