To use up the 15 pounds of potatoes from Costco, we have made these twice baked potatoes twice – so does that make them quattro baked????
- 3 medium/large russet potatoes
- 4 tablespoons butter
- ½ c sour cream
- 1 c cheddar cheese, preferably sharp
- Salt, pepper, garlic salt
- Optional: cooked and chopped bacon, chives
Preheat oven to 375. Scrub potatoes. Bake in the oven (unwrapped but on a piece of aluminum foil to catch any drips) for 1 ½-2 hours until the inside is soft. Remove from the oven and cool.
Once cool, slice the potato in half. Remove the inside of the potato with a spoon and place in a bowl. Do your best not to puncture or tear the potato skin shell.
In the bowl, add the butter, sour cream, cheese, and a pinch of salt, pepper and garlic salt to the potato. Use a potato masher or a fork to incorporate all of the ingredients together. Once combined, spoon the mixture back into the potato skin shell and press down with the spoon to fill in the gaps.
Place the potatoes on a baking sheet and reheat in a 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes until heated through. Top with chopped pieces of cooked bacon, chives and/or more cheese.
