Loaded Twice Baked Potatoes

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 55 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes
Servings: 6 potato skins

Ingredients

  • 3 Russet Potatoes
  • Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt or Kosher Salt
  • 2 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • garlic seasoning with parsley
  • Shredded Colby Jack Cheese
  • 3 Slices of bacon cooked and crumbled

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Roll each potato in a drizzle of olive oil and then in the salt to coat entirely.
  • Place the potatoes in the oven on tin foil and bake for 40-50 minutes
  • Allow to cool then slice open lengthwise and remove most of the white flesh into a bowl. See note if you do this on separate days.
  • Add the butter and cream cheese and using a potato masher begin mashing the insides.
  • Add seasoning and mash until smooth, adding more butter if necessary.
  • Spoon back into each potato skin and top with cheese and bacon.
  • Place into a baking dish and bake until the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.

Notes

If you prepare the baked potatoes a day ahead, store them in the fridge and then reheat the insides in a bowl so the cream cheese and butter melt when mashing.
