    I have made these potatoes before with 2% milk. This time I used the Carnation Evaporated milk, and what a difference. They were so creamy. And yummy. Will definitely make them again this way.

    The lighter side

    Tricia Porter from Hattiesburg, MS

    These are delicious. I used Carnation Fat Free Evaporated milk which is a staple is my kitchen. I use the Fat Free Version for everything from coffee to casseroles. It is great. I'm 55 and still wear a size 4.

    These potatoes are a crowd pleaser! I didn't have enough cheddar so I made them half pepper jack and half colby jack. They were delicious!

    EXCELLENT!! Even for two...

    Jessica Lara from Iowa Falls, IA

    There's only two of us to feed, so I cut the recipe in half and used 3 potatoes. They turned out better than I could have expected! My husband told me, "You can make these any time you like!!" I actually baked the potatoes the day before to save myself time the following day. Excellent recipe!

    I love bacon so not only did I mix it in with the potato mixture I sprinkled a lot on the top. I also topped it off with a dab of sour cream just before serving.

    TWICE-BAKED POTATOES

    ERIS BLANTON from WATERTOWN, NY

    Very easy, fun. we loved it. couldn't ask for a easier side dish. Have to make this more often.

  •  Star(s)

    you should also try....

    Jess from canada

    This recipe is kind of like my Mom's who has been making these potatoes for as long as I can remember. The one variation is when she scoops out the potatoes; she adds milk, sour cream, chopped green onion, grated cheddar cheese, and bacon bits, then mixes it all together. Re-stuff the potatoe skins with mixture and then top with remaining cheddar cheese. These will go over amazing with your families and guests.

    cheese combo for perfect tater

    Karin Gaffney from lakewood, CO

    My husband loves twice baked potatoes - but since I grew up in a very Italian family, I never made or ate them before - Thank you so much for this recipie, I made it for his Birthday dinner last night. The only change I made was to substitute the cheddar cheese with a provolone/parm mix and then stuck it under the broiler for the browned cheese effect it was so yummy!

  •  Star(s)

    Excellent potatoes

    Cortnie Kopp from

    Twice baked potatoes have always been my favorite way to do potatoes. I'm very excited to have re-found the recipe. I encourage everyone who likes potatoes to try this recipe. I do think it takes some practice getting the insides out without damaging the outsides, but it's definitely worth it! I like mine topped with sour cream.

    Yummy potatoes

    Sandy Wagar from VICTORIA, TX

    I have made baked potatoes before by scrubbing and putting in foil and baking for about an hour sometimes adding butter to outside of potato to keep it soft but never scooped out and made as good as these are. Will definitely fix again.

    I made these for dinner the other night and everyone really liked them. Make sure you cook the potatoes completely. You can heat them up the next day and they are just as good.

    A few modifications and loved by all

    Michelle Weiss from ARLINGTON, VA

    I baked the potatoes mostly before scooping out, which made them much easier to scoop (30 ish minutes in the oven). Then I scooped out and followed the recipe for the scoopings, except used 1/3 cup evaporated milk, 1/3 cup 2% milk instead of 2/3 evaporated milk (saved the rest of the can for after dinner coffee). Returned skins to the oven for crisp-ness. Instead of using seasoned salt, I used a touch of kosher salt and garlic powder, which worked great. This was a very, very big hit with everyone.

    twice baked potatoes

    Heather Nolting from Independence, IA

    I had to make a side dish for a picnic and chose these. Instead of filling skins I peeled and mashed potatoes with the other ingredients, then put them in a pan and baked them that way. I also used 1/2 carnation milk and 1/2 sour cream and onion chip dip. I still used the cheese on top and bacon and green onions to dress it up a bit. The picnicers thought it was a nice change from our usual

    Twice Baked Potatoes

    Terry Golden from Grenada, MS

    This is a simple yet comforting recipe. I use a cup of milk and half a cup of mozz cheese in addition to the cheddar. I also serve it with sour cream and sliced black olives...and a fair amount of good ole black pepper, as well as the bacon and green onions...a winner!

    Terrific Twice Baked Potatoes

    Marian Plummer from Cleveland

    This recipe was a hit with the whole family. Will definitely make this again and again. The next time I will substitute regular milk for the condensed milk. The condensed milk made the potaotes a little sweeter than we would have preferred, bu this is an awesome recipe.

    twice baked potatoes

    ivy lang from claremore, OK

    I do a version of this but I use ranch dressing as well as milk and I lay american cheese in the potatoe before I put the mashed potato back in and cover it with bacon to reheat.

  •  Star(s)

    Look like a pro!

    Jane from Matamoras,Pa.

    This recipe came in handy! Although, I do suggest a full cup of Carnation milk, 7 oz. of shredded cheese in the filling, and 3 oz. of cheese to sprinkle on top. I also I added some garlic powder & paprika for flavor.
