Delish Anniversary Dish

We celebrated our 8 years together last night with a delicious meal of my favorite things: steak and potatoes! This combination always makes me a happy girl. I made twice-baked potatoes for the first time last night and they were DELICIOUS!!!!!! I usually don't like twice-baked potatoes because they can get very dry, very easily, but these were insanely good. Recipe is at the bottom. It's from the allrecipes.com website.

Putting the filling back in the potatoes

YUMMMMY!! :)

Tell me your not salivating!!!!

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes
  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 8 green onions, sliced, divided

    DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Bake potatoes in preheated oven for 1 hour.
  • Meanwhile, place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  • When potatoes are done allow them to cool for 10 minutes. Slice potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop the flesh into a large bowl; save skins. To the potato flesh add sour cream, milk, butter, salt, pepper, 1/2 cup cheese and 1/2 the green onions. Mix with a hand mixer until well blended and creamy. Spoon the mixture into the potato skins. Top each with remaining cheese, green onions and bacon.
  • Bake for another 15 minutes.
