Twice Baked Potatoes Recipe

Twice Baked Potatoes Recipe - Zulay Kitchen

Twice baked potatoes! These potatoes are a delight and my family loves them, we eat them as a side dish for dinner and they are spectacular, they combine very well with any protein. Honestly, as delicious as they are, even on their own they are great!

This recipe is great, you take a common potato to a perfection of flavors and textures; the potato skin becomes crispy and is filled with creamy mashed potatoes, lots of cheese, bacon and garnished with fresh chives. I particularly add mozzarella and cheddar cheese to make the filling even more delicious. The potatoes are baked twice, once to cook the potato and make the inside soft, and once to gratinate after the stuffing.
This dish is worth preparing, you will see that your family will love it. Join us!
