Twice-Baked Potatoes

recipe Baked Potatoes
cup dairy sour cream or plain yogurt
teaspoon garlic salt
teaspoon black pepper
Milk (optional)
cup finely shredded cheddar cheese (3 ounces)
tablespoon snipped fresh chives (optional)


  1. Prepare potatoes as directed below; let stand about 10 minutes. Cut a lengthwise slice from the top of each baked potato; discard skin from slice and place pulp in a bowl. Scoop pulp out of each potato. Add the pulp to the bowl.
  2. Mash the potato pulp with a potato masher or an electric mixer on low speed. Add sour cream, garlic salt, and black pepper; beat until smooth. (If necessary, stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons milk to reach desired consistency.) Season to taste with salt and additional black pepper. Stir in 1/2 cup of the cheddar cheese and, if desired, chives. Spoon the mashed potato mixture into the potato shells. Place in a 2-quart baking dish.
  3. Bake, uncovered, in a 425 degrees F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until light brown. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 2 to 3 minutes more or until cheese melts.

medium baking potatoes (6 to 8 ounces each)
Shortening, butter, or margarine (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Scrub potatoes thoroughly with a brush; pat dry. Prick potatoes with a fork. (If desired, for soft skins, rub potatoes with shortening or wrap each potato in foil.)
  2. Bake for 40 to 60 minutes (or in a 350 degrees F oven for 70 to 80 minutes) or until tender. To serve, roll each potato gently under a towel to break apart the insides. Using a knife, cut an X in the top of each potato. Press in and up on the ends of each potato to open.
