Kell's Twice Baked Potatoes OAMC

These are the best. Cheesey and creamy, they just melt in your mouth. This recipe makes a big batch, 24 potatoes in the shells, and 2 containers of mash - 6 to 8 servings in each. I use my Kitchenaid mixer with the wire whisk attachment for this recipe. You'll have to do two batches for all the potatoes unless you have a larger than standard bowl. It's completely worth it! The kids were fighting for seconds!

ingredients

directions

  • Scrub the best sized 12 potatoes in the bag. Poke each with a fork and bake in oven at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
  • While those bake, peel the rest of the potatoes and boil until soft. Drain.
  • Cut baked potatoes lengthwise and scoop insides into a bowl. You should end up with 24 shells. Place these on cookie sheets.
  • In mixer with wire whisk, combine one package cream cheese, one stick butter, and 1/2 cup sour cream until blended.
  • Add scooped insides of baked potatoes and a little less than half of the boiled potatoes and mix on low speed.
  • Add some milk and mix until it is the consistency you like.
  • Add garlic powder, parsley or chives, and salt. I just add it until it tastes good. I think about 1 1/2 teaspoons of each.
  • Fold in half of the shredded cheddar. You can use more or less, whatever you like.
  • Fill shells heaping and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes or until tops start to brown.
  • While those bake, repeat the recipe with the rest of the boiled potatoes. Place mixture in two baking dishes (foil bread pans work well) and freeze for later. ***To bake, thaw completely and bake in oven at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until top starts to brown.
  • I freeze 8 of the baked filled shells individually for lunches, 8 more get frozen in a foil pan for later, and 8 end up being a side dish to dinner!

    My daughter can't get enough of these - I did add bacon to them as a personal preference. We have two containers of mashed and 24 - oops - 18 twice baked in the freezer. Thanks for the great recipe!

    I just made this today to try and I loved it. I couldn't keep my 2 yr olds fingers out of the bowl. That's a clear clue that he approves. I froze two plastic containers of filling for mashed potatoes for meals also. This will definately be a repeat in my house Thanks so much Kell!

    This is wonderful - and so easy! I get lazy, so I put two in the microwave to deftost for 10 minutes before putting into the oven. 15 minutes later and it's done! Or you can just keep in the microwave at 2 minutes at a time. I had plenty of "stuffing" leftover, so I just froze it in smaller bags so I can have a side dish of mashed potatoes one day.

    Kell, these were terrific. My hubby is a big Ore-Ida Twice-Baked guy. Those are over $2 for two halves. I got a 10 lb. bag of potatoes on sale for $1.99. You are a genius! I accidently added all the shredded cheddar to the mash but it worked perfectly. I made my first 2 halves tonight. Cooked from frozen 3 minutes in the micro and then put them in the toaster oven on the burnt-toast setting. They TOTALLY rocked!!!
