365 Things to do with Potatoes: Episode six

Twice baked.

Because the simple deliciousness of a once baked potato needs to be altered.

Alright, they don’t always necessarily need to be altered. But gracious, they’re good when they are.

And here’s what you need:

A potato

Cheese (Cheddar, cream, soft mozzarella)




So, here’s what you do.

Bake a large potato at about 450 for about 30 minutes. Pull them out and let them cool completely.

Once they’re completely cool to touch, cut it in half. Take a spoon and dig out the middle, try not to get too close to the skin, it’s going to be pretty fragile at this point. You’re looking to make a potato “bowl”.

Put the potato bits in a bowl, and add cheese, crumbled up fully cooked bacon (bacon bits), and spinach to your tastes. Mash it all up together. Spoon it back into the remaining bowls of potato. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella or cheddar cheese, and broil on high until the tops are melted or long enough so that they’re crunchy. Makes a good texture.


They’re pretty easy, I wish I could tell you they were posh, but they qualify more as “redneck posh” than really posh. You can call homemade potato chips posh, but not really a potato filled with cheese and bacon….


Next time, we’ll have something you can call posh 🙂
