I'm back and it is good to be home! Not that I went anywhere but with the holidays normal routine just flies out the window, you know?

Anyway, it's good to have the decoration down, settling back into school, and back to a normal blogging schedule.

Now if you're like me you are probably a little weary of all the rich and heavy foods we've indulged in the last several weeks so I'm sharing a pretty basic recipe with you today. (Ironically I only remember eating these when my grandmother would make them during the holidays.) You might even already have this in your recipe box but maybe haven't thought of it in a while.

Twice Baked Potatoes

What you'll need:
4 to 6 good sized baked potatoes 
shredded cheese
bacon bits
green onion chopped
butter
half and half 
salt and pepper to taste

What you'll do:
Slice potatoes length wise and scope out the inside into a medium sized mixing bowl leaving the skins in tact. Place the skins (they'll sort of look like little boats) into a 9x13 pan. Don't worry about squishing them together, it won't hurt them.
Mash your potatoes until smooth. Add the next six ingredients, stirring until completely mixed. 


Spoon mixture back into the potato skin boats. Sprinkle with a little more cheese and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.


You can top with sour cream or just enjoy them as they are. I usually make a few with no onions for my kidlets that don't like them. Pair with a salad for a simple meal or add as a side. I use them often when preparing meals for new mothers because they're pretty safe and easy to heat up.
