Basic Twice Baked Idaho® Potatoes

Always wonder how to make twice baked potatoes? Here is a simple, yet delicious recipe for basic baked potatoes.

Times

  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 1 hour, 20 min
  • Ready Time : 1 hour, 35 min

Servings

8

Ingredients

  • 4 large Idaho potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil (optional, for a softer-skinned potato)
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat ("light") sour cream
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Milk (as desired, for consistency)

Directions

Preparation

1 Preheat oven to 425° F. Pierce potatoes with a fork several times. Rub potato skins with olive oil if a softer potato skin is desired. Bake potatoes directly on the middle oven rack for 50 – 60 minutes or until they yield to gentle pressure.
2 While potatoes are still hot (use oven mitt to hold potato), cut them in half lengthwise. Scoop out the interior flesh of the potato into a medium-sized bowl, leaving a shell about 1/4-inch thick all around. Using a potato masher, mash the potato flesh.
3 Add sour cream and seasonings and mash until smooth, adding a little milk if necessary to make a smooth consistency. Stir in add-ins as desired.
4 Turn oven to 400° F. Using a spoon, gently fill the potato shells with the potato mixture, mounding it up high. Place filled potatoes on a baking sheet and bake for 18 – 20 minutes or until hot.
