These Twice Baked Potatoes with Bacon are so yummy and they are a great compliment to ham, grilled steak or serve along side a heap of Sheet Pan Oven Roasted Vegetables!
They have just the right amount of bacon, green onions, sour cream and cheddar cheese. This recipe makes eight to ten potato halves but can easily be doubled if you want to bring them to a party or you just want extras to freeze for later.
I won’t lie to you, this recipe does take a little bit of time but they are so worth it! Twice baked potatoes are so good and in my opinion a lot easier to make than mashed potatoes.
I’ve tried baking the potatoes a couple of different way. You can cut the potatoes lengthwise and bake the halves but I found it only save 10-15 minutes. To me the potatoes are much easier to cut in half after baking and they scoop out of their shells easier too.
I noted freezing instructions in the recipe below and you can also make them a day ahead, just refrigerate then bake just before guests arrive. I hope your family enjoys them as much as we do.
