  • Prep 25 min

  • Servings 6
Use ricotta and Parmesan cheeses to give twice-baked potatoes an Italian twist.
Updated March 17, 2010

Ingredients

  • 6 medium baking potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Additional chopped fresh parsley, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Bake potatoes about 1 hour or until tender.
  • 2
    Cut each potato in half crosswise; scoop out inside into large bowl, leaving a thin shell. Mash potatoes until no lumps remain. Stir in cheeses, 1/4 cup parsley, the pepper and egg until well blended.
  • 3
    Increase oven temperature to 400°F. Cut thin slice from bottom of each potato half if needed to stand upright. Place shells on ungreased 15x10-inch pan with sides; fill shells with potato mixture.
  • 4
    Bake about 20 minutes or until hot. Garnish with additional parsley and bell pepper.

  • The stuffed potatoes can be covered and refrigerated before baking; increase the baking time to 30 minutes. Or wrap airtight and freeze; bake about 40 minutes.
  • If doubling the recipe, you can easily bake 12 potatoes at once, but prepare the filling for 6 potatoes at a time so that you can thoroughly blend the ingredients.
