Twice-baked potatoes are like the dinner-plate version of cupcakes – they’re cute, decadent, individually portioned and completely irresistible. Sure, they require more effort than your average weeknight potato side (they’re baked, mashed, mixed, filled and then baked again), but they’re also one of those dishes that makes any dinner feel like a special occasion. Twice-bake a cheesy batch for family and friends whenever you want to impress.
