I don’t do these often, but they sure are a nice treat when I do! Yum! I’m a potato-girl. 🙂

Twice-Baked Potatoes

4 large potatoes
1/4-1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 tsp salt
Dash pepper
1 cup shredded cheese
Parsley/chives, if desired

Wash potatoes, then poke several times with a fork to allow steam to escape while potatoes bake.

Bake 1hr 15min at 375F or until potatoes feel tender when pierced in center with fork. Cool.

When potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut lengthwise; scoop out inside, leaving a thin shell. Mash potatoes in bowl with potato masher or electric mixer until no lumps remain. Add milk in small amounts, beating after each addition. Add butter, salt and pepper; beat vigorously until potatoes are light and fluffy. Stir in cheese. Fill potato shells with mashed potato mixture. Sprinkle chives/parsley on top.

Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Increase oven temperature to 400F. Bake about 20 minutes or until hot.
