Stephanie's Twice Baked Potatoes

Stephanie's Twice Baked Potatoes
by: Stephanie

Serves: 4

2 Large Russet or Idaho Potatoes
3/4- 1 cup Cream Cheese
1- 1.5 cups Cheese, divided (cheddar works best)
1/2- 3/4 cup sour cream
2-4 tbsp butter/margarine
1/2 chives
1/4-1/2 cup milk
Salt and pepper (to taste)


1. Bake the Potatoes in the oven for about 45 minutes (until fork can easily be inserted) at 400 degrees
2. Cut Potatoes in half
3. Scoop out the meat of the potato
4. Mix meat of potato and all other ingredients (minus the divided cheese)
5. Once all mixed together to a consistency of your liking, add 1/2 of the divided cheese
6. Spoon the potato mixture back in each potato skin and top with remaining cheese
7. Place back in oven for 10-15 minutes at 350, until cheese is melted

***can sprinkle finished potato with cooked bacon pieces if desired

***If in a hurry you can stick the potatoes in the microwave while the oven is preheating, to jump start the cooking process. Make sure, if you use the microwave that you use it first, so that the skin of the potato stays crispy, once out of the oven :)***
