If you didn’t think mashed potatoes could get any better, think again. This easy twice-baked version delivers all the creamy goodness of mashed but in a salty, crispy skin with a melted cheese topping. A potato-lovers nirvana! See how to make these step-by-step here.
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Prick the potato several times with a fork and bake until tender, about 45 minutes. Let cool slightly, then cut the potatoes in half lengthwise.
Scoop the potato flesh out of the skins into a medium bowl, leaving about 1/4-inch thick shell. Add the butter, sour cream, chives, salt and pepper and mash until almost smooth.
Spoon the potato mixture back into the shells. Arrange on a baking sheet. Sprinkle the tops with more fresh chives and the cheese.
Bake at 400°F until the tops are beginning to brown and they are heated through, about 25 minutes. Serve warm.
