Twice Baked Potatoes

This is a great side dish to serve with any kind of meat. It goes really well with a roast. I have served it for a few dinners that I have thrown and everyone is always very impressed! It's super easy and not time consuming!

What you need:

4-6 large baking potatoes
1/2 cup butter
1/2 - 3/4 cup sour cream
1/2 - 1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons Chives, diced
Bacon, chopped
1/4 - 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Wash potatoes and lightly pierce each with a fork. Bake for an hour to an hour and a half, until tender. Slit the top of the potato. Carefully scoop out potato, leaving a thin shell.

In a large bowl, combine scooped out potato centers, butter, sour cream, salt, pepper, and some cheese. Beat with an electric mixer for 3-4 minutes until well blended and fluffy. Fill shells withh potato mixture and sprinkle each with cheese and chives. Wrap in each potato in aluminum foil and bake for another 20-30 minutes or until potatoes are heated through.
