    Kookaburra's Note:

    These cheesy, buttery, garlicky potatoes make a great casual weekend lunch. If we had guests, we'd probably serve them on a plate with a crisp green salad, but really, they're great just on their own. Not for slimmers!

      Mash potato with the back of a fork until the mixture is smooth and well combined.

      Pile potato flesh back into the skins and return potato halves to the roasting tin.

      Return the tin to the top shelf of the oven for 10-15 minutes or until the tops of the potatoes are a light golden brown.
    20. 20
      Remove potatoes from oven and place into serving bowls (2 halves per person).
    21. 21
      Top each potato half with a heaped teaspoonful of sour cream.

      Serve hot.

      These were really good. I made them a little quicker, by microwaving them first instead of baking them to be done. I used just chives, as I really liked the combination of chives and potatoes. I also reduced the amount of butter a little and made up for the missing 'liquid' by adding 1-2 tbsp of skimmed milk. I then baked them for about 30 minutes to get the skins and tops crispy. I'll be making these again, thanks for sharing.

      Love it! I accidentally forgot the garlic and pepper, but it tasted great anyways! (Not to mention twice baked potatoes are the best to improvise with :) ) Great recipe, will be making it again, I am sure.

      Fantastic! I love twice baked potatoes and these were superb! I used dried herbs (parsley and chives)and stayed true to the recipe. A keeper!
