Double baked Potatoes

As I always say, we love our potatoes and this simple double baked potato recipe is a crowd pleaser and a game night favorite!

We just decided to eat them for Monday lunch and give ourselves a little”Pick me up” on this gloomy day. Crispy garlicky on the crust and soft loaded in the center

If you love potatoes, you’re going to be obsessed. Let’s dive into making these roasted beauties

You’ll need:

2 Medium Russet Potatoes

1 tbsp Olive oil

Salt and Pepper

2 tbsp Table cream

2 tbsp Butter

½ tsp garlic powder

Tzatziki/ Sour cream

Basil leaves/Scallions

½ Cup shredded cheddar cheese


Preheat your oven to 400F

Take two prewashed Russet potatoes and rub olive oil to completely coat them. Top with salt, garlic powder and toss it in the oven for 45 mins to 1 hour till tender. Let cool once they’re out so they get easy to handle

Cut lengthwise into two parts each and scoop out the flesh in a bowl leaving very little on the skin. Now brush the potato with butter, sprinkle salt and pepper. This is how they should look:

Potato skins, flesh scooped out

Toss the potato skins in the oven at 400F for 10 mins

In the meantime, lets prepare the stuffing. To the potato flesh, add cream, melted butter, salt & pepper and chopped basil leaves. Mix thoroughly to combine

Add the filling to the baked potato skins and top with shredded cheddar cheese. Broil in the oven for 10 mins

Once out, top them up with some Tzatziki or Sour cream and some chopped scallions. You can also fill these potato skins with Shredded chicken or Mushrooms and top them up with crispy bacon
