Baked Potato is a delicacy that melts in your mouth, but have you ever baked it twice?
Twice-baked potato is a rather fancy-looking side dish that will impress your dinner guests without taking too much of your time in the kitchen. This recipe is a chance for both at-home chefs and novice kitchen adventurers to absolutely nail a classic.
YouTube favorite Chef John of Food Wishes provides the technique, but he encourages you to play around with the toppings, flavor profile and seasonings.
"Taste is, and always will be, the most important aspect of cooking," he says, "but when entertaining guests on special occasions, don’t forget that you’re putting on a show with the food, and when it comes to starchy side dishes, this is a great way to express that flair for the dramatic."
Chef John adds green onions, white cheddar cheese, cayenne, egg yolk and cream to his concoction, creating an extra rich experience most people are sure to enjoy, but this is really just a jumping off point.
