Easy Twice Baked Potatoes

"These are easy to cook and assemble and can be frozen to be used as needed. I use large potatoes, so 1/2 stuffed potato shell is one serving."

Ready In:
1hr 20mins




  • Bake potatoes in a 375 degree oven 1 to 1 1/2 hours until done.
  • When potatoes are done let them cool 10-15 minutes.
  • Then slice them in half lengthwise.
  • Using a spoon carefully scoop out the potato, leaving a little on skin so they don't break. Save the skins.
  • In a large bowl mix all the ingredients except 1/4 cup cheese, green onion and paprika with a hand mixer until well blended and creamy. If not creamy enough add a bit more milk.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.
  • Spoon potato mixture evenly into shells.
  • Top with remaining 1/4 cup of cheese and green onions.
  • Sprinkle lightly with paprika.
  • Return to oven until hot and cheese is melted, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Or you can wrap in saran wrap and put in a freezer ziplock bag and freeze for use at another time.

Questions & Replies

  1. I did not have sour cream so I used Siggis Icelandic 0% fat Plain yogurt in it's place - it was awesome and light - I wondered how to, or can you calculate the nutritional values with that change? thanks!


  1. Excellent way to use up leftover baked potatoes, and a versatile enough recipe to be able to add your own spices/flavors to suit your personal tastes. This one is a keeper!
  2. I used Kittens Recipe#288122 for the baked potato, then went on to make this. Loved the creaminess, the green onions, and even the paprika! Thank you1
  3. YUUUUM! Junebug, these were fantastic!! DH was so happy to eat these wonderful Twice Baked Potatoes...his favorite! And now I believe I know why....They don`t have "American" Cheddar Cheese here, and the English type is not the same, so I had to use Jarlsberg cheese...the flavor blended in just fine, and we didn`t think it had any "bitter" taste that Jarsberg sometimes causes. Fantstic and oh-so-good! Thanks for sharing!!
  4. We really enjoyed these potatoes. I used grated cheddar cheese and it really hit the spot. The potatoes were creamy and cheesy and the green onions gave it a nice zip. Great combination of flavors. Since my potatoes were huge, I just served them along side a garden salad. Can't wait to make these again, Junebug.
  5. I had this for dinner tonight with a tossed salad. You are right, this was definitely easy to make. I used some Gouda I had in the fridge and chives, as I didn't have an green onion. There is a picture for you, but I'm sorry it turned out kind of dark. Just to let you know that I'm going to make these again because they were so good, and i'll get a better photo then. Thank you, Junie for the delicious tater recipe! :)


I am a wife, Mother and Grandmother. I am a native Texan and can't imagine living anywhere else. My Grandmother taught me to cook before I could see the top of the counter. I remember standing on a stool in her kitchen learning to make pancakes. My Mother loved to cook and it seems she was cooking (or cleaning) most of the time. So those are the two ladies responsible for nurturing my love of cooking! <a href="http://s245.photobucket.com/albums/gg77/monji74/?action=view&current=groupie1.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i245.photobucket.com/albums/gg77/monji74/groupie1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> As you can see I cook and review recipes more than I post them. That's because I am a pinch of this and a dollop of that cook and it's hard to put those recipes down on paper. <img src="http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/Swap14.JPG"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/200_artistrichardneuman-art-prints_.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting">
