Horseradish and Chive Twice Baked Potatoes

horseradish and chive twice baked potatoesI am having a hard time believing that Memorial Day weekend starts today. Somehow it completely snuck up on me, and I have made nothing red, white, and blue yet. I feel really bad about that. I live on an Army base after all. I drive by a national ceremony every day, so in some ways, I guess that every day is Memorial Day. Being up close and personal with a national cemetery is humbling. It reminds you how many have fought for our freedom. And how lucky we Americans are.

If you are having a barbecue or a get together, these twice baked potatoes are perfect to make earlier in the day and reheat when it is time for dinner. These are perfection next to a steak. I love horseradish, and I especially love it with potatoes. I add it to my mashed potatoes all the time. If you do not like it, you can just leave it out. The key to a good twice baked potato is to make sure that you season it really well. A bland potato is just not worth eating as far as I am concerned. You can also add blue cheese if have some, and it is crazy good. There are about a million ways to make a twice baked potato. Another favorite way to make them is with bacon and green onions. But really, can you go wrong stuffing anything inside a potato?

Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Welcome summer!

    Ok, I’m sure it is staring me in the face so I’m sorry if this is a dumb question, but where is the part about how/for how long you baked it the first time?

    1. bakedbree

      I didn’t because I called for already baked potatoes, but I usually put them in a 400 degree oven for 45 minutes. Poke them with a fork a few times before you put them into the oven.
