Twice baked potatoes....these are so special...the great thing about these are you can get them ready ahead of time....just pipe the filling in the shells...put them in the fridge and bring out later to bake....perfect for a dinner party or perfect to serve with everyday meatloaf.....
Twice Baked Potatoes
4 medium potatoes scrubbed and dried
4 ounces or 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar
1/2 cup of sour cream
1/2 cup of buttermilk
2 tablespoons of butter
2 thinly sliced scallions...or green onions
salt and pepper
Bake the potatoes until fork tender....take out of the oven and cool slightly (about 10 minutes) carefully cut the potatoes in half and scoop out the insides, into a large mixing bowl...arrange the shells in a baking sheet...and mash the potatoes, you can use a mixer if you like, add the cheese, buttermilk, sour cream and butter...mash until creamy and add the scallions.....you can spoon this mixture right back into the shells or put in a piping bag and pipe back into the shells...pop back into the oven and bake another 15 minutes, at 500 degrees....
get your ingredients ready, while the potatoes are baking....
scoop the potatoes out of the shell, do not take to much of the potato out it will weaken the shell...careful they are very hot! put in a large bowl and add the rest of the ingredients and mash...mash...mash....
pip the creamy mixture back into the shells...
when you pipe you get all these many, many little grooves and edges....they brown up great!
ready to go back into the oven!
Cheers to Happy !!
