Twice Baked Potatoes

I'm not always a big fan of baked potatoes. They tend to be boring and bland. Twice baked potatoes on the other hand are full of flavor! Here is one of my favorite potatoe recipes...


4 large baking potatoes
8 slices bacon
1 cup greek yogurt
1/4 to 1/2 cup milk
4 tablespoons butter
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup chopped green onions

1. Preheat oven to 350. Rub potatoes with a few drops of vegetable oil and poke with a fork. Place on cookie sheet and bake for 1 hour or until potatoes are tender. While potatoes are baking, cook and drain bacon. Spin in the food processor a few times.

2. When potatoes are done, let cool 10 minutes or so. Then slice lengthwise. Take each half and scoop out the inside, leaving enough so the potatoe maintains its shape like so...

3. Next take the potato guts in a bowl and add the yogurt, spices, 3/4 of the bacon, 1/2 the cheese. Stir well. Add the milk slowly until desired consistency is reached.

4. Fill potatoe shells with mixture and top with remaining bacon, onions and cheese. Bake for another 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Don't the potatoes and Vegetable Soup look delish?
