Twice Baked Potatoes

Last Saturday, my wife made up a couple of twice baked potatoes to go with our supper. I scrubbed 2 large baking potatoes, then pierced them with a fork and cooked them in the microwave on the baked potato setting. When they were done and nicely soft on the inside, my wife cut them in half lengthwise. She then scooped out the cooked potato into a bowl, leaving about a quarter inch thick potato shell. She mashed the removed potato with about a tablespoon of butter. She then added some salt, pepper, a tablespoon of chopped cooked bacon, 2 heaping tablespoons of fresh chopped parsley, a whole minced green onion, and about a cup of shredded old Cheddar cheese. She mixed the filling well and then spooned it back into the potato shells and topped each potato half with about 2 tablespoons of shredded old Cheddar cheese and finished with a sprinkle of sea salt and fresh ground black pepper.

The potato shells were placed on a baking sheet and placed in a 350F oven for about 20 minutes, which was just enough to perfectly melt the cheese on top and get the inside of the potato nicely hot again. We had them with a dollop of sour cream and they were delicious! Stay tuned for posts about the rest of our supper that night. It was amazing!
