I always order twice baked potatoes at nice restaurants, but have never made them myself. The caption on the pin attracted me to this recipe. The caption reads “only 88 calories..”! I recalculated the calories after I made the recipe, and I came up with 225 calories. Maybe it was the cheese I used? The recipe took 1 hour 45 minutes total; however, only 25 minutes of that time is hands on! These turned out great. I will be making them again. Next time I might make a few extra potatoes, because I didn’t have enough filling to stuff the potatoes as much as I’d like to. I should also mention that the picture on the pin shows a whole potato stuffed, but the recipe tells you to cut them in half, which is what I did! I ate mine like a potato skin!
Time: 10 minute potato prep / 1 hour baking / 15 minute filling prep / 20 minutes more baking = total of 1 hour 45 minutes!
Substitutions: My husband is not a fan of mustard, so I eliminated the mustard. Also, I forgot to sprinkle the paprika. After 17 minutes of baking, the cheese wasn’t crispy on top, so I turned on the broiler for the last 3 minutes and that did the trick!
