Twice-baked potatoes transform a standard baked potato into a creamy and comforting small meal. The potato skin becomes and edible shell for mildly flavored mashed potatoes, the ultimate comfort food.
For a more substantial meal, keep the potatoes whole instead of halving them. Slice a 1/2 inch off the top of each potato lengthwise and hollow out the skins. For stronger flavor, top with minced fresh chives or additional Parmesan cheese.
If you're trying to increase calories, add butter, substitute heavy cream for the milk, and choose full-fat cheeses. If you're trying to control your weight, choose reduced-fat options.
Instead of being microwaved, the potatoes can also be baked for 1 hour at 350 degrees.
