Twice Baked Potatoes // These cheesy potatoes are a delicious side dish and will compliment any meal. | Tried and Tasty Ok people, if I had to chose one word to describe these Twice Baked Potatoes it would be: amazing. I thought I would be eating these alone because Steve isn’t really a potato man – he especially doesn’t like mashed potatoes. He really liked these! Nothing speaks more to my heart than when Steve enjoys something I cook :) I will definitely be making these more often, they were just that good!

These cheesy Twice Baked Potatoes are a delicious side dish and will compliment any meal.



  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 8 slices of bacon or bacon bits
  • 1 c/ sour cream
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 c. shredded cheddar cheese divided
  • 8 green onions sliced, divided (or chives)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Bake potatoes in preheated oven for an hour to an hour and a half; until they are easily pierced by a fork. 

  2. Meanwhile, place bacon in a large deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside. If you are using bacon bits just keep those handy.

  3. When potatoes are done allow them to cool for 10 minutes. Slice potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out the flesh into a large bowl; save skins. 

  4. To the potato flesh add sour cream, milk, butter, salt, pepper, 1/2 c. cheese and 1/2 green onions. Mix with a hand mixer until well blended and creamy. 

  5.  Spoon the mixture into the skins. Top each with remaining cheese, green onions or chives, and bacon. Bake for another 15 minutes.
