Twice Baked Potato

Twice Baked Potato is a delicious take on potatoes. A bit sour, spicy, tangy & really tasty. Baked skin of the potato is an added bonus. The best part is the goodness & richness of potato. A keeper recipe for me.

More easy baking recipes like savoury tomato zucchini tart, focaccia, olive bread.

I made Twice Baked Potatoes not long ago. We celebrated new year with them.

V wanted them again.

What V wants, V gets!

Does he? Doesn’t he? Two different view points we share. Blame it on matrimonial harmony!

Coming back to twice baked potatoes, last time I baked them using hung curd mixture, this time I used the potato filling mixed with potato scooped from inside.

The result for delicious and very filling.

Though the baking time is high, I find it needs minimum work and perfect for parties. It is truly a crowd pleaser.

While photographing the potatoes, I thought setting it formally, not sure it worked here. V didn’t like it much.

It’s been 2 months since I clicked these, but when I look at my images of today and this one, I definitely feel I could have done better.
