These twice baked potatoes are a great potato preparation to be served with fish or meat. The cooked potato halves are filled with sour cream and cheese along with vegetables and baked. Super easy and simple, these twice baked potatoes are delicious and filling.
Ingredients
  Idaho potato 4
  Sour cream 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Chopped green onions 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Broccoli crowns 2 Small
  Shredded cheddar cheese 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Butter 2 Tablespoon
  Bacon bits 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Sea salt To Taste
  Creole seasoning To Taste (Tonys)
Directions

Preheat oven to 400F.

Wash potatoes. Wrap in foil.

Bake for 1 1/2 hours turning over half way through cooking.

In the meantime, steam broccoli crowns.

Remove potatoes from oven and open from foil. Let sit a few minutes.

Cut potatoes in half and separate. Allow to cool a bit in order to handle.

Take a small spoon or ice cream scooper and hollow out the potato halves. Put in a large mixing bowl.

(Do not scoop all the way to the skin so that you have a stable base.)

To the potatoes, add butter, sour cream, broccoli, green onions, cheese, and seasonings.

With a potato masher or a large whisk, mash all the ingredients together well.

Place the mixture back into the potato shells.

Place on a baking sheet or casserole dish.

Top with more shredded cheddar cheese.

Bake 5-10 minutes to re-heat and melt the cheese.

Remove from oven and serve.
