When it's blustery outside, fire up your oven, wash an entire bag of giant (baker) potatoes, russets work well for this. Bake them for 50-60 minutes at 375F. (Or until they are soft when you pierce them with a fork).

Once you've scooped out the insides of all your potatoes, mash them with a bit of butter and season with salt and pepper.

Line up the empty skins on a large cookie sheet and add about 1- 2 Tablespoons of your favorite fillings to each skin.

Some ideas in Varying Combinations:

  • Cheeses (various kinds- Mozarella, swiss, provolone, Sharp Cheddar etc) shredded or chopped fine
  • Scallions - chopped
  • Bacon, Cooked & Crumbled
  • Jalepenos, sliced
  • Chives, Freshly Chopped
  • fresh garlic, minced




Now, carefully fill each skin with the Mashed potatoes. In this photo I've added chopped scallions to our mashed potatoes, but you can add whatever you like based on your families taste buds. Season with salt & pepper

When you're making dinner and need a super easy side dish, simply toss them in the oven (yes, Frozen!) at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Or, if you're grilling out or camping, wrap them in tin foil and place on the grill over indirect heat for 15-20 minutes.

For a light meal, serve 1 Twice baked tater with a side salad.

    Oh I never thought about freezing baked Potatoes! As soon as I get the stuff from the Church out of my freezer I'll have to try this. I just love things lurking in my freezer that I can run grab to fill in the blanks! Frozen cinnamon rolls is our family favorite!

    I take my roll dough and refrigerate it until it gets very cold, punching it down as needed. Once very cold and no longer raising, then we work very fast rolling it out and making the cinnamon rolls and cutting it and putting them on parchment paper lined cookie sheets and running them to the freezer. A few hours later when they are frozen we bag them up. When we want cinnamon rolls we take out one for each person and lay them on a cookie sheet and start the oven heating up. Then we bake just what we needed and We keep a container of icing in the fridge for those that want icing on theirs. No big pans of cinnamon rolls just one per person treat so we don't over do it! Works great for an occasional treat. We also make Pizza rolls and keep those in the freezer. I know we'll love those twice baked potatoes in the freezer too! Thanks for sharing that idea with us!
