How to make Dawson’s Twice Baked Potatoes

just out of the oven!

One of our most favorite side dishes has to be my grandson Dawson’s twice baked potatoes! He loves to visit Nanny and Poppy because he gets to experiment lots in the kitchen. At only 12 years old he’s already made Pizza, bread, cheesecakes, cookies and these yummy potatoes are his latest creation. I sure hope he turns out like nanny in the kitchen. I’m sure he’ll be just as good if not better. Dawson says Nanny’s a better cook than Chef Ramsey.

Easy to make and super yummy I’m sure that these twice baked potatoes are sure to become your families favorite as well. loaded with cheese, sour cream crispy smoky bacon and a little green onion for garnish these are just as appealing to your eyes are they are to your taste buds. If you didn’t want to go through the trouble of scooping and refilling the potatoes, you can always just put it all in a big casserole dish for the whole family to enjoy!

Here’s a video of Dawson & I demonstrating how to make these delicious twice baked potatoes in my kitchen. It also shows you how to start chive blossom vinegar. I’ll do another post for that later. It’s also beautiful and has a mild chive flavor.

How to make Dawson’s Twice Baked Potatoes:


  • 6-8 med-lg. Potatoes russett are best
  • 8-12 slices of bacon fried
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • Sharp cheddar cheese about 3/4 cup
  • sliced chives or green onion
  • salt and pepper to taste


Boil potatoes until fork tender, allow to cool slightly so you can work with them without burning your fingers. Cut tops off and scoop potatoes into a lg. bowl. Add butter sour cream, 3/4 of the cheese and salt & pepper mix and place back into the potato skins. Top with extra bacon cheese and chives. Place in the oven at about 375 until warm and cheese is melted.
