Oh potato! Potatoes are fabulous, right? They're cheap and easy to cook. They are versatile in giving you many different ways to cook them. 
I love to make a twice baked potato when we get bored with baked potatoes. 


  • 4 xl potatoes (mine weighed in at 3.4-combined) 
  • 1 stick of butter 
  • 1/2 cup cooked chopped bacon 
  • 1/2 heavy whipping cream 
  • 1 tsp salt 
  • 1/2 tsp pepper 
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped red bell pepper 
  • 1 cup sour cream 
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese 


  • Green onions 
  • Shredded Cheddar 
  • Bacon 
  • Sour cream


  • Bake potatoes until done (My large potatoes baked on 350 for about 2.5 hours- wash them, poke them with a knife, and wrap in foil) 
  • Slice potatoes in half lengthwise 
  • Scoop out potatoes leaving 1/4 inch in the shell/skin 
  • Add all ingredients to a bowl (This is easier to do when the potato is still pretty hot, the butter will melt and everything will mix nicely and make a creamier mixture) 
  • Add the mixture back to the skins of the potatoes 
  • Add some cheese and green onions on top 
  • You can either bake them again right away, or you can put them in the fridge to cook for tomorrow! I like to cook them the next day,  personally. 
  • Cook on 350 until warmed
  • After you cook them, add any extra toppings you may want
