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.

From Food Network Magazine: Marbled Stuffed Potatoes
Can’t decide between sweet potatoes or regular russets? Mash them up together, with this twist on a classic (pictured above). Sour cream, butter and sharp cheddar make it a stuffed potato to remember, the perfect side for a Sunday chicken dinner.

Paula’s Shrimp-Stuffed Potatoes
Once again Paula pushes the boundaries, stuffing potatoes with the normal stick of butter, two cheeses and sour cream, and then mixing in shrimp! Looks good, and 261 (and counting) 5-star reviews prove it’s a winner.

The Neelys’ Twice Baked Potatoes With Broccoli
For a tasty take on broccoli-cheese potatoes, the Neelys mash their broccoli right into the potato filling, along with sour cream, sharp cheddar and smoked gouda. “These potatoes ROCK!!!!” says reviewer Cherie from Georgia.
