twice-baked potatoes

i have always loved twice-baked potatoes
{who doesn't?}
but this was my first time making them.
they were instantly and unanimously favorited.
{is that a real word?}
after dinner, ned said,
"i don't like baked potatoes, but i do like these."
i bet you will, too.
and how bout that organic spinach~arugula~beet~chevre salad?

: twice baked potatoes :
bake your potatoes in the usual way
{find my baked potato post with how-to here}
once they are baked & cooled a bit,
cut them in half.
gently scoop the potato from the skins
and into a large bowl.
{do your best to keep the skins intact}
mash your potato with all sorts of goodness:
butter, salt & pepper, grated cheese,
sour cream, little bits of fresh chives.
then scoop the mixture back into the skins
and bake them for another 15 minutes. 

you can find a more recipe-ish recipe here.

mmmmm... comfort food.

Nothing beats the comfort of a good ole potato!

We love to stuff our twice baked potatoes with broccoli.
I guess it is because my mom always did that to get us to eat more veggies!
