These easy twice baked potatoes are easy to make ahead of time so that dinner comes together in a snap.
4 Idaho® potatoes
1 teaspoon olive oil (optional, for a softer-skinned potato)
1/2 cup sour cream
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Milk (as desired, for consistency)
Pre-heat oven to 450°F. Wash and dry potatoes.
With a fork or sharp knife, pierce each potato 2 or 3 times.
Rub each potato with a little oil (just enough to lightly coat) and salt generously.
Place on a cookie sheet or baking pan. Bake 50 to 60 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork.
While potatoes are still hot (use an oven mitt to hold potato), cut them in half lengthwise. Scoop out the interior flesh of the potato into a medium-sized bowl, leaving a shell about 1/4-inch thick all around. Using a potato masher, mash the potato flesh.
Add sour cream and seasonings and mash until smooth, adding a little milk if necessary to make a smooth consistency.
Turn oven to 325°F. Using a spoon, gently fill the potato shells with the potato mixture, mounding it up high. Place filled potatoes on a baking sheet and bake for 18 - 20 minutes or until hot.
