Twice-baked potatoes are easy to make and take less work than you might think! You start with baked russet potatoes and carefully scoop out the potato flesh. The mashed insides of the potatoes are blended with a mixture of butter, sour cream, cream cheese, and a variety of seasonings, like minced garlic, cheddar cheese, green onions, and more.

The potato mixture is added back to the potato skins and they are baked for the second time.  The top can be garnished with fresh herbs, grated cheese, or toppings like bacon bits. 

Here are some delicious main course options to serve with this perfect side dish!
