Stuffed Potatoes

This is a great recipe for any leftover baked potatoes. When I bake potatoes for a meal I will throw in a couple extra and plan on making these that week. Plus, this is the only way Dallin will eat a baked potato.
When the potatoes are baked, cut in half and dig out all the potato, reserving the skinMash the potatoes the way you like them. I like to add sour cream, it makes them really creamy. When they are smooth, I add garlic salt, salt, pepper and a little parsley flake.

Spoon the mashed potatoes into the skins and top with cheese. (sidenote: two seconds after this picture I dropped the pan upside down in the oven! I no longer have fingerprints)

Bake at 350 until heated through, about 20 minutes. They are a little worse for the wear because of their fall, but delicious.
This is our main dish and I usually serve with cottage cheese, fruit, and a vegetable.


  1. This makes me want these tonight. Thanks for the idea. I absolutely LOVE potatoes.

  2. I have never done stuffed potatoes...can't wait to try them!

  3. These are also called twice baked potatoes. Yummy! I've never thought about having them as a main dish, but it's a great idea. Thanks1
