I am a major fan of twice baked potatoes...and this is a good recipe. I did do a lot to change things up. I use shredded cheddar instead of american and I add some cream cheese to it. They come out very creamy and they taste great. Definately need to add salt and pepper to taste. This is definately a favorite at our house.

This is a very good basic recipe. I'd only add: Spice the potatos up well according to what you like. Cook one extra smaller potato for every 2 you make so you have lots of stuffing. If you 1st bake the potatos in foil retain the foil and roll into a U shaped strip to hold the potato halves steady for the 2nd bake.

I used the american cheese slices and melted them seperate from the melted butter. Mixed the cheese butter sour cream in with the potatoes and added a dash of bacon bits and a couple TBLS minced green onions. The "scooping" stinks - I have yet to master it with 100% success but very good and went great with dinner.

I always cheat and use microwave potatoes that I scoop out and then bake in the oven. For the inside I add some garlic powder onion powder and mustard powder. I always use cheddar cheese or sharp cheese. You can substitue milk if you don't have sour cream. Be sure to sprinkle a little bit of paprika on top before baking. These are always a big hit.

I would recommend cheddar rather than american slices. I don't find that they melt very well. Plus with the cheddar you can shred it and just throw it in the potato mixture while mashing.
