my whole family loves this recipe for twice baked potatoes. this is a perfect weeknight supper served with some simple greens. the addition of milk helps keep the potatoes light and fluffy. you could top this however you like or mix broccoli into the potatoes instead of chives. this would be a perfect side for a holiday supper!
4 large potatoes
5 green onions sliced thin
2 cups extra sharp cheddar cheese
¼ cup 2% milk
4 tablespoons butter
sour cream for topping
salt and pepper
bake potatoes at 400 degrees for one hour. pull potatoes out of the oven and let cool for five minutes. slice them in half and scoop out the potatoes, leaving potato skins intact. place the potatoes to be mashed in a large bowl, and add milk and butter. mash potatoes until creamy. add cheese and half of the green onions and mix in until well combined. add salt and pepper to taste. fill each potato and place them on a lined baking sheet. top each potato with cheddar and return the potatoes to the oven until cheese is melted. serves with a scoop of sour cream and green onions.
