Twice Baked Potatoes

After finding that my cousin is allergic to potatoes I went home and made all things potato.  I needed to eat some and thank the good Lord I have no potato allergy.  I simply love potatoes as does the hubs.

I must confess I had a friend in HS whose mom made the best twice baked potatoes I have ever had.  So, going into this recipe I had my doubts.  No one could beat Matt's moms recipe.  Her's had a creamy goodness that made my heart melt.

(sorry about the shadow, it was taken in haste!)

I ended up having to doctor PW's up.  I hate admitting that but they just didn't do it for me.  I ended up whipping out my mixer and adding some cream cheese into the mixture to add a bit more flavor and still I wasn't impressed.  I don't know what was missing, but these did not do much for me. 

They weren't bad, just not great.  I don't know that I would make these again.

That is funny, I am just like you...I have a twice baked potato recipe that I love, so I am having a hard time talking myself into trying a new one!

I was on a potato hook. All week, all potatos. It was the only reason I tried them. :)

I don't have the recipe in front of me but maybe adding sour cream would give it a little more tasty creamyness.
