As I promised, twice baked potatoes. Originally I got the recipe for some twice baked potatoes from my McDougall book but, as is the trend with many of his recipes, they were pretty bland. So we decided to add a few ingredients of our own. Ben threw them together and his results were amazing! These don’t need ketchup or anything. They are super tasty! The recipe below is for two baked potatoes.
Brush potatoes with a little bit of oil and then bake at 425 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Remove potatoes from the oven and slice a bit off of the potato, length-wise (around 1/4″). Scoop out the insides of the potato, leaving a bit attached to the skin to hold it up. Place the potato insides in a bowl and mix with the following ingredients:
3-4 T Water
3 T Parsley
2 Scallions, chopped
1/4 C Soy bacon bits (I used the dried kind from the bulk section)
Nutritional yeast to taste
Take the mixture and stuff it back into the potatoes. Top with paprika, black pepper, and bacon bits. Put potatoes back into the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
