Twice Baked Potatoes

How good are twice baked potatoes?! I haven’t had one in years but had a craving to create my own this week after reading the latest Food Network Magazine. So glad I did, what a treat they were. I made a homemade broccoli and cheese sauce that gets mixed into the mashed potatoes before baking again. Seriously I died. Kick your diet to the curb for a day and indulge in these babies! Let’s take a look at how to make them!

How To Make Twice Baked Potatoes

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Pierce potatoes a couple times with a fork and wrap loosely in foil. Bake for 1 hour or until fork tender. Remove and cut off top 1/2 inch across tops. With a knife, cut around borders of potato leaving about 1/4 inch around edges. Spoon out centers and place into a bowl. Transfer to a mixer and add butter, salt, pepper, garlic salt and milk. Beat on low until well combined.
  2. To prepare sauce, melt butter into a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour, salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in broth, continuously stirring until thickened. Add cheese and sour cream, stirring to combine.
  3. Steam broccoli florets until fork tender, drain then cut into small pieces. Add to cheese sauce.
  4. Add one cup of cheese sauce to mashed potatoes, mixing to combine then fill potato shells with mashed potatoes. Top with additional shredded cheese and bake for about 20 minutes or until cheese is melted. Garnish with chopped chives if desired. Serve warm.

    Hello! I pinned this a while ago and finally made it tonight. But the potatoes were not done after an hour and 20 minutes, is that normal? And when I scooped out the insides, it was so hard, it didn’t get creamy so the inside had chunks of potatoes, isn’t that right? I never had this problem with potatoes before so maybe I just need to go up in temp. I was just curious if they were supposed to be underdone like that. Thanks!!

    It states 1 cup of shredded cheese twice in the directions. Is this a misprint, or are there supposed to be 2 seperate cups?

    Twice baked potatoes freeze great just let them cool down and put them in the freezer before the second bake. I like to make extra since there are so much work and then you have a nice treat when you are in a rush.
