Twice-baked potatoes are the best of both worlds between a baked potato and loaded mashed potatoes. You can make them with sour cream, cheese, bacon bits, garlic, onions, or any other ingredients you’re into. And they taste even better when the flavors have time to meld, so making a big batch and saving the rest for leftovers is a great idea.

Things You'll Need

Oven

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove twice-baked potatoes from the refrigerator or freezer and unwrap.

Place the potatoes on a cookie sheet. Brush the top of each potato half with melted butter.

Heat in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until bubbly and golden brown. If the potatoes are frozen, heat for one hour.

Microwave

Remove the potatoes from the refrigerator or freezer and unwrap. Place on a microwave-safe plate.

Brush the top of each potato half with melted butter.

Microwave, uncovered, on high power for 10 minutes, rotating halfway through if needed. Let sit 2 minutes before serving.
