You all know my husband is a meat and potatoes kind of man. He’d eat potatoes everyday if, I’d let him. Nope… I cook them in moderation. His favorite styles of potatoes are scalloped and diced potatoes. He also loves twice baked and I can’t forget to mention loaded potatoes…
Well, here’s my Classic Twice Baked Potato Recipe. Simple, quick and to the point. Take this recipe and add your special touch or use as is.
4 Baked Potatoes
2 tbl spoons butter
2 tbl spoons feta cheese
1 1/4 cup shredded cheese (I used mexican style) you will also need extre cheese to place on top of the potatoes after stuffing them.
1/4 cup ranch dressing
1/2 tsp salt (I use pink Himalayan salt) also feel free to use a bit more to taste or exclude salt all together if you have any health issues.
1/2 tsp pepper
First clean your potatoes.
Take potatoes and poke holes throughout potatoes and place on an oiled oven safe pan.
Place potatoes in a preheated oven at 450 for about an hour and a half. Use fork to test if potatoes are tender by sticking fork in thickest part of potato.
After removing potatoes from oven cut potatoes in half horizontally. This step I use my fork to hold potatoes in place and to prevent burning myself.
After you’ve cut potatoes in half scoop out insides of potatoes and place insides in a bowl. Place all of the above ingredients in a bowl by adding the butter first so it melts thoroughly and the rest of the ingredients after that and cheese last. Mix well.
Fill potato halfs with potato filling that you have prepared and lastly, sprinkle more cheese on top of potatoes before placing them in oven. Add as much cheese as your heart and butt desires Place in 350 degree oven for approximately 30 minutes or until cheese has melted on top.
Remove and serve….with the rest of your meal.
