Recipe: Twice baked potatoes

Twice baked potatoes are probably the best and yummiest side dish for a good home-cooked steak. And if that’s what you’re serving up for dinner at home, you better get on this recipe.

Here’s what you’ll need (based on two servings): two potatoes, shredded cheese, bacon, butter, and chives/green onion.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Wrap your potatoes in foil and put them in the oven for 50 – 60 minutes, or until you can spear it with a fork and it passes easily through. (The larger your potato, the longer you leave it in.)
  3. While your potatoes are in the oven, cook up some bacon and crumble it into pieces for later.
  4. Once your potatoes are finished, take them out of the foil and let them cool.
  5. As soon as they’re cool enough to handle, slice off the top 1/4 of the potato, and use a spoon to take out the interior — leaving a small ring of potato attached to the skin (about 1/4 inch).
  6. Mix the potato insides with 1/4 cup of shredded cheese and 2 tbsps of butter in a bowl.
  7. Scoop this mixture back into your hollowed potatoes, top with the bacon bits you prepared earlier, and top with more shredded cheese.
  8. Bake for about 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and golden brown.
  9. Finally, add your chives or green onion garnish on top, and enjoy!
