  • You bake it once, scoop out the insides leaving the skin intact, mix in cheese/sour cream/chives/bacon bits, refill the skin, an bake it again a bit longer. It's awesome!

  • They're absolutely delicious. It's not baked a second time for very long. Just enough to melt the cheese inside (if you're using any) and crisp the top.

  • Noooo.. it doesn't burn. It's like the deviled egg of potatoes.. take the guts out, make them better, and stuff them back in. Baking them AGAIN doesn't take long and will not burn them. They are fannnntastic.

  • Oh, they're so good! I usually do the first "bake" in the microwave. Let them cool a bit, scoop out the flesh, mix it with yummi stuff, like cream cheese, roasted garlic, shredded cheddar, and then put ot back in the skin, cover with cheese and bake until bubbly!
    They don't burn, they're delicious.
    Another twice bake food I love is the biscotti, they also don't burn by baking them twice.
