Twice baked Potatoes…

We usually don’t eat that many potatoes… but with Spring here finally we decided to BBQ some steaks the other day and Simon made a special request for these…

Twice baked potatoes are delicious and so versatile…

Here is the way I make them….

First… bake the potatoes….

my favourite way of doing that is by coating the potatoes with olive oil (put some oil in my hand and rub the potatoes) then prick them with a fork and bake at 350 for about 45-50 min… Even if you are not making twice baked potatoes, this is my favourite way to make baked potatoes because the olive oil makes the skins crispy…

then you cut the potato and carefully scoop the inside out into a bowl…. (leave enough potato for the skins to hold their shape and I use a cloth or my baking mitts to hold the potato while it is hot…)

Mash the potatoes in the bowl with whatever you like (I added butter, sour cream, green onions, salt, pepper, and a pinch of garlic powder) then scoop the mashed potatoes back into the skins… (add a bit of cheese on top if you wish) and then bake again until the tops get bits of brown…

So easy and just a great way to make a baked potato more interesting…

Slice (not all the way to the bottom) and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle of salt and pepper and a bit of smoked Paprika…

I have also made them with slices of garlic or onion between the potoato slices…

Bake for about 45 min at 350…
