Ingredients

4 large Russet baking potatoes
3 tbsp canola oil

½ c. sour cream (or more to get texture creamy)

How to make Twice Baked Potatoes

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 425 degrees F.

Step 2: Dry the potatoes after washing, then pierce 2 to 3 times using a fork. Over the potatoes, rub the oil, salt, and pepper. On a baking sheet, place the potatoes. Pop in the oven for about 45 minutes. Keep in mind that the baking time of the potatoes varies depending on their size. To check if the potatoes are done, poke a fork into it. The potatoes should be tender inside. When done, take the potatoes out of the oven and let them cool for at least 10 minutes.

Step 3: Meanwhile, adjust the oven temperature to 350 degrees F.

Step 4: In half lengthwise, slice the potatoes. Scoop the flesh into a large bowl using a spoon, leaving around 1/4-inch of flesh on the potato skins to hold the filling.

Step 5: To the bowl with the potato flesh, add the sour cream, cream cheese, milk, butter, bacon, chopped onions, and a cup of cheese. Mash the mixture using a potato masher until well combined and smooth. If you’d like, you can leave the potatoes a bit chunky.

Step 6: Into the potato skins, spoon the mixture, and top them with the rest of the cheese and bacon. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 10 to 15 minutes until the cheese has melted.
