Recipe - Twice Baked Potatoes

I'm back. Work was a bit hectic last week so I'm afraid that I have been a bad, bad boy and not been updating this as I should. But here we go with a nice twist on the old favorite, baked potatoes.

Twice Baked Potatoes - makes 8 halves

4 medium baking potatoes
6 slices of streaky bacon, fried until crispy
1/4 cup sour cream
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup melted butter
2 tablespoons chopped chives
1/4 cup milk

Bake the potatoes in the oven at 190c/Gasmark 5 for about 1 hour 15 minutes. Take out the potatoes from the oven and let them cool down.

When they are cool enough to be handled, slice them in half lenghtwise. Use a spoon to scoop out the potato flesh, leaving a thin shell.

In a bowl, mix the scooped out potato and butter and mash until fluffy. One at a time, add the milk, cheese and sour cream. Add the chives and the bacon right at the last minute so that they don't turn soggy. Season to taste.

Take your potato halves and scoop some of the mixture onto each one of them. Bake in the oven at 200c/Gasmark 7 for about 20 minutes.
