Double Baked Potatoes

Baked potatoes are a great recipe for when you have a couple of extra potatoes lying around. Once the potatoes are baked, you can either double stuff them with yummy goodies such as chives, bacon, cheese, sour cream, and butter, or you can chop the potatoes into a breakfast hash brown. Potatoes are incredibly versatile and extremely filling. Baking potatoes does take some time, especially with several of them baking at once. Because this recipe could take a couple of hours of baking time, set a timer and go get some other things done while you wait. Potatoes and productivity never tasted so good!

· 3 potatoes
· Olive oil
· Sour cream
· Chives
· 4 slices of bacon
· Cheddar or feta cheese
· Butter
· Half and half milk (or whole milk)

1. Wash potatoes and rub them in olive oil. Wrap them in aluminum foil and bake at 375° for about 90 minutes. Every now and then stick a fork into the potato – if the fork doesn’t go right through it needs more time to bake.
2. Once the potatoes are fully baked and somewhat soft, cut 1/4 of one side of the potato off. You don’t want to cut the potato in half, but more of just the “top” of one side of the potato.
3. Using a spoon or melon scooper, scoop out the insides of the potato into a large mixing bowl.
4. Mix all of your goodies together in the bowl with the potato. Season with salt and pepper.
5. Once the ingredients are all mixed together, scoop the mash into the potato shell until filled to the top.
6. Place the re-stuffed potatoes back onto the baking tray, and bake for another 20 minutes. For a golden look on top, broil the potatoes for about 15-25 seconds.

Enjoy your double stuffed potatoes! These are seriously delicious and for me, a better way to eat baked potatoes since you get all of the fillings in each bite.
