What's so nifty about twice-baked potatoes besides the great taste? You can prep them ahead, and they're ready to pop in the oven at the last minute.
Updated Oct 23, 2008

Ingredients

  • 3 large baking potatoes (8 to 10 oz each)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup basil pesto
  • 1/3 cup julienne sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil and herbs, drained
  • 1/4 cup sliced ripe olives, well drained
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Chopped fresh basil or parsley, if desired
  • Additional shredded Parmesan cheese, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Gently scrub potatoes, but do not peel. Pierce potatoes several times with fork. Bake 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender when pierced in center with fork. Let stand until cool enough to handle.
  • 2
    Cut each potato lengthwise in half; scoop out insides into medium bowl, leaving a thin shell. Add milk to potatoes; mash with potato masher or electric mixer until no lumps remain (amount of milk needed will vary depending on type of potato used). Stir in pesto, tomatoes, olives and 1/2 cup cheese. Fill potato shells with mashed potato mixture. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 3
    Bake about 20 minutes or until hot. Sprinkle with basil and additional cheese.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Refrigerate unbaked filled potatoes tightly covered up to 48 hours. To reheat in oven, bake uncovered on ungreased cookie sheet at 375°F about 30 minutes or until hot.
  • tip 2
    To reheat baked potatoes in microwave, arrange potatoes in circle on 10-inch microwavable plate. Cover loosely with microwavable plastic wrap; microwave on High 12 to 15 minutes, rotating plate one-half turn after 5 minutes, until hot.
