I love twice baked potatoes, but I wanted to be able to serve them more easily so I decided to put them in muffin pans.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 375 F.
  2. Poke holes in rinsed potatoes, rub with olive oil and salt, place on baking sheet and cook 60-70 minutes.
  3. While potatoes are cooking prepare the bacon as you normally would
  4. Dice onions.
  5. When potatoes are done cooking, remove from oven and allow to cool 15-20 minutes or until you can handle them comfortably.
  6. Once potatoes have cooled cut them in half and scoop out the flesh into a large mixing bowl. (You can save half the skins to mix as well if you wish; be sure to coarsely chop the skins before placing them in the mixing bowl).
  7. Turn oven back on to 350F.
  8. Mix cheese, sour cream, bacon, and onions into the potatoes with a spoon or electric mixer.
  9. Line muffin pan with cupcake/muffin liners and scoop mixture into liners.
  10. Sprinkle with thyme and ground corriander.
  11. Place muffin pan into 350F oven for 20-25 minutes or until tops of "muffins" are browned.

The potatoes themselves were great! Serving them was a disaster. I'm not sure what I did wrong, but when I tried to get the potatoes out the muffin pan, it was one big mess. I ended up scrapping the potatoes off the paper muffin cups and putting them into a bowl. Thank goodness, not one said they tasted paper! I felt like I threw away half of my mashed potatoes because they stuck to the paper. I would make the recipe again, but I'll just stick to a casserole dish next time.

This is so much easier than trying to stuff everything back in the shell! I used all of the skins, as that is my favorite part (chopped as noted). Another great idea that is a twist! I'll be making these for my next big crowd (I only made enough for the 2 of us this time).
