These Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes are just like the ones from the steakhouse, stuffed with bacon, cheddar, scallions and sour cream.

Step 1 Preheat oven to 450 F. Bake potatoes for 45 minutes until fork tender. Meanwhile, fry bacon in a pan on the stove.

Step 2  When potatoes are done, let them cool for 10 minutes. Slice potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop the flesh into a large bowl, being careful to leave about a 1/2 inch of flesh around the skins.

Step 3 Add butter, onion powder, garlic powder, salt &pepper, 1/2 the cheddar cheese and 1/2 the scallions to the potato mixture. Blend with a hand mixer or immersion blender until creamy.

Step 4 Spoon the mixture back into the potato skins. Top each with remaining cheddar cheese and bake for 15 minutes until cheese is melted.

Step 5 Remove potatoes from oven, then top with bacon and remaining scallions. Serve and enjoy!

Storing and Reheating Store any leftover potatoes in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Just make sure all those yummy toppings don’t fall off. You can reheat them on a plate in the microwave or put them on a baking sheet and bake them for 20-25 minutes at 350° Fahrenheit.
