Twice Baked Potatoes

Easy side dish that you can vary depending on what you have on hand.


  • 2-4 potatoes
  • butter or margarine
  • shredded or sliced cheese, any kind you like
  • cottage cheese or milk or whipping cream (whatever you have on hand)
  • Salt and Pepper and any other seasonings you like on potatoes

Optional: A pinch of baking soda will make them more fluffy.



Cook potatoes in microwave until centers are soft (don't let the skins get too wrinkly). Slice each potato in half and scoop out as much of the insides as you can while keeping the shells intact.

Put scooped out potatoes in bowl. Add butter or margarine, plus bits of shredded cheese, salt adn pepper. I like to add some cottage cheese to add to the creamy flavor. You can also tear sliced cheese into bits for it. You can combine cheeses for cheesier flavor. Add any other seasonings you like on potatoes and beat with mixer until mostly smooth.

Fill potato shells with mixture and top with a little bit of shredded or sliced cheese and toast in oven or toaster oven until hot and cheese is melted.

Everyone loves these! This is a great side because you can vary the ingredients depending on what you have on hand plus it makes a great side when you are serving company. Experimenting with various seasonings like spicy and hot also adds to the flavor.
