These twice baked sliced potatoes can be served as appetizers, used as a side dish, or just as a snack to munch on. Topped with sour cream, bacon, and green onions.
Why is it called a twice baked potato?
Typically, with twice baked potatoes, you bake it first. Remove the “innards”, mash them, and put the mashed taters back in the shells (skins). Then you bake them again. In this case, we sliced them and baked them again.
Do you poke holes in twice baked potatoes?
Yes, before baking the whole potato, you should poke holes. This allows the steam to release from the potato and not explode.
Should foil wrapped potatoes be baked?
Foil holds in the moisture and steams the potato. This gives it a different taste and texture. It’s a matter of preference on whether or not you wrap them in foil. You should NEVER microwave a foil wrapped potato. In addition, you wouldn’t need to wrap a potato in foil if you are boiling it. You can, however, grill them wrapped in foil.
