Twice Baked Potatoes


One of my favorite dinner memories as a kid was coming to the table and seeing my mother's version of this delicious recipe. It's one step beyond the plain old “baked potatoes with a pat of butter on the side” that we would typically eat and it was exciting to have a new twist on a dinner time staple!

I decided to give my recipe an even bigger nutritional boost by tossing in some broccoli florets (which my family loves), but feel free to substitute broccoli with peas, greens or any other veggie your little one digs. You can even defrost something you have in the freezer if you don't feel like cutting up fresh.
With just a little more effort, you can turn you dinner from "mmm...potatoes" to "MMMMMM!!!....twice baked potatoes!”

    This looks delish! Just enough of the good, fattening ingredients to give it flavor, but not too much. Both of my kids love broccoli, so I think that they would go for this. Thanks for posting the recipe!

    These are so good I secretly hoped my son wouldn't like them. No luck! We made them with
    goat yogurt instead of sour cream because we had it on hand.

    These are AHH-Mazing!!! We make them frequently and the little one loves them! We change up the veggies.... peas, corn, broccoli, cauliflower. I do sub garlic salt instead of table salt.

    We just had these for dinner, and they were SO good! I added some bacon (I know, not the healthiest addition, but definitely helped sell the kids on eating dinner) and some onions, and then broiled them for a few minutes after the baking time was over, to get the tops a little crisper. We called them \"Potato Boats,\" and our kids (1 1/2, 3 & 5) absolutely loved them. Next time I'll have to make extras so we have leftovers for lunch the next day!
