Twice Baked Potatoes

AKA Super Stuffed Potato Skins! These potatoes will disappear as soon as they come out of your oven. They are wonderful for lunch and as a side with a  casual supper, but make them out of new potatoes for a fun party food. I have made them along side my Stuffed Sweet Potatoes here.
What you'll need

 100g Bacon or Pancetta Lardons
4 Large Baking Potatoes
½ Cup Mature Cheddar Cheese
2 tbsp Cream Cheese (I use Lactofree)
1 tbsp Salted Butter
1 tbsp Chopped Chives
Salt and Pepper


Potato Stuffing

  1. Preheat the oven 200ºC.
  2. I put a bbq skewer through the Potatoes to speed up the cook time. Bake for 30-40mins.
  3. Fry the Bacon and leave to drain on paper towel.
  4. Take the potatoes from the oven and cut them in half. Scoop out the centres into a bowl.
  5. Use a fork to beat into the potato flesh with the Butter, Cream Cheese, Salt, Pepper and Chives.
  6. Spoon the mix back into the skins, then sprinkle with Bacon and Cheese.
  7. Place under the grill for another 10 mins until hot and the cheese is golden brown.
