  • Bake in preheated oven until potatoes are easily pierced with a fork, 50 minutes to 1 hour. Remove from oven and cool slightly.

  • Reduce oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Cut a thin slice off the top of each potato; scoop out pulp and place in a small bowl. Beat potato flesh, butter, milk, and salt with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth and fluffy. Fold cream cheese and sour cream into potatoes; spoon mixture into potato shells. Sprinkle with paprika and place on a baking sheet.

  • Bake in preheated oven until heated through and tops are golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes.

My kids loved these but I did make some minor adjustments. I "baked" my potatoes in the microwave instead of the oven. Once scooped I sprayed the potato skins with cooking spray so they would crisp a little when later baking. I needed to add more milk than what was called for to get a creamy and fluffy consistency. I just added milk a little at a time until the consistency was correct. I also salted to taste. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of a sprinkling of about a tablespoon of shredded cheddar cheese on top of each. Sure the filling is creamy but the taste is about the same as if you added all of those ingredients to a once-baked potato. I'm not sure it's worth the extra effort. Read More

These were SO good! I was licking the bowl and couldn't stop snacking on the filling. I baked 4 potatoes took out the filling of all 4 but only used 2 potatoes to fill back up (so that the filling would be nice and thick piled up high!) I also threw in a small handful of sharp cheddar cheese after mixing it together. Oh I completely forgot to add the butter...it doesn't even need it! It's so rich from the cream cheese you won't miss it! You could add additional toppings like bacon and sour cream if you want to go the extra mile but again it doesn't even need it! Tasty! Read More

I made these substituting heavy cream for milk (I had some leftover that I needed to use) and Mascarpone cheese for cream cheeese (again it's what I had on hand). Simple easy to make and absolutely delicious. I love that you don't need a lot of ingredients to make something to incredibly good. Read More

This was a fantastic recipe for baked potatoes!! I had already used all my cream cheese to make cheesecake so I had to add more milk to make it creamy about 1/2 cup total. Also for some extreme flavor I added 1 1/2 tbsp of minced garlic 1 tbsp of parsley. I baked 4 potatoes so I can have really full potato skins but I was still able to have enough remaining over to use as a side for next day dinner menu. Added some shredded sharp cheddar cheese sour cream and scallions to the top with some steak gravy. Delicious!! Read More

I believe these were the best twice baked potatoes I've ever had. I did modify them slightly by adding two cups of shredded cheddar (I made four potatoes though) and I used the entire thing of cream cheese (8oz) instead of the 6oz that it would be for doubling the recipe. I also know I used more than two Tbsp of milk probably more like four. I then topped the potatoes with some shredded cheddar and baked. They were so amazing! We have tried so many twice baked potato recipes and this one is the winner!!! Read More
