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.

What Are Twice Baked Potatoes?

Twice-baked potatoes are a type of baked potato dish where the potatoes are first baked until they are soft, then they are cut in half and the insides are scooped out and mashed with butter, milk, and other ingredients. The mashed potato mixture is then spooned back into the potato skins and baked again until it is hot and crispy on the outside.

Twice-baked potatoes are a popular side dish, and they are often served with a variety of toppings, such as cheese, bacon, sour cream, chives, and other herbs and spices. They are also a good way to use up leftover mashed potatoes, as the mashed potato mixture can be flavored with a variety of ingredients to create a new and tasty dish.

Ingredients

  • 4 baked potatoes (see below for instructions)
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons horseradish (it depends on how strong you like yours)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh chives
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Recipe Variations

Twice-baked potatoes are very versatile so don’t hesitate to try out different ingredients to suit your taste buds.

Some people like to add different bacon and green onions to the filling. Those are the traditionalists. I personally like adding blue cheese to a twice-baked potato as it brings a tangy and savory flavor to the dish.

No matter how you make them, you can’t really go wrong. Just use high-quality ingredients and don’t overcook the potatoes. As long as you do this, your twice baked potatoes should turn out delicious every time.

How To Prepare Perfect Baked Potatoes

Preheat your oven to 375 F. Wash then dry your potatoes. You want them clean and clear of any dirt and debris. Using a fork, poke holes in the potatoes. This will let the steam out while they cook.

Place them on a baking sheet and bake them for 75-90 minutes. It really depends on the size of your potatoes. To test, pierce them with a fork. If they feel tender, they’re ready. If you like your potatoes golden and crispy, coat them in oil or butter.

They will be very hot once they come out of the oven so let them cool for a bit. Make sure to check my baked potato recipe.

Should You Wrap Baked Potatoes in Foil?

Wrapping them in foil helps the potatoes cook more evenly and leaves the skin crispier but doing so isn’t required. Foil can hold in moisture and steam the potatoes, which can give them a boiled potato texture, which I really dislike. If you do decide to wrap your potatoes in foil, be sure to turn them over regularly throughout the baking.

Notes

*To bake potatoes, start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, wash the potatoes thoroughly and pat them dry with a paper towel. Use a fork to poke holes in the potatoes, which will allow steam to escape as they cook. Once the potatoes are ready, place them on a baking sheet and bake them in the preheated oven for 75-90 minutes, or until they are tender when pierced with a fork. Cooking time really depends on the size of your potatoes. You can also rub the potatoes with a little bit of oil or butter before baking them to help them crisp up and become golden brown. Once the potatoes are cooked, remove them from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes.
