Decadent Twice Baked Potatoes

Recipe by Susie D
READY IN: 1hr 34mins




  • Scrub potatoes. Spray pan and potatoes with cooking spray and lightly sprinkle with salt if desired. Bake at 350 degrees until done (approx 40 minutes).
  • Let potatoes cool enough to handle. Slice in half lengthwise. Spoon out the inside of the potatoes into a bowl; leaving a shallow amount in the shells. Place shells back into pan.
  • Add cream cheese, butter, sour cream, cheddar cheese, 2 tablespoons of the milk and all spices into the bowl with the potato insides. Stir until blended & fluffy, but not overworked. Adjust with additional tablespoons of milk if needed. The result should be creamy, but still scoop able.
  • Spoon into the potato shells. Cover and chill at this point if making for a later meal. They can also be frozen at this point.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until potatoes are hot & lightly browned. If working with chilled potatoes made earlier in the day add 10-15 minutes cooking time. The potatoes can also be baked directly from frozen by adjusting the cooking time.
  • Optional garnish: After removing from oven sprinkle lightly with smoked paprika & the green onion tops for color.
