Twice Baked Potatoes

Sometimes just plain baked potatoes can get a little boring. With only a couple more steps, you can turn plain baked potatoes into amazing, flavorful and creamy twice baked potatoes. The fiance said these are the best potatoes he has ever had. That is pretty high praise for the guy who loves meat and potatoes. These are so easy and delicious. I served them with some pulled rib sandwiches, but these would be great with any main dish!

While your potatoes are in the microwave, get out your mix-ins. Cheeses, butter, green onion and Greek yogurt (or sour cream)

Gently cut the potatoes in half and scoop out the inside, making sure to leave a thin layer of potato. You can use any cheeses you happen to have on hand.

Take all of that scooped out potato and add butter, cheese, green onion, pepper and greek yogurt.

Put the filling back into the potatoes

Sprinkle with more cheddar and Parmesan cheese and place in oven.
