    Another weekend another birthday party dinner, and of course I overdid it again. Three appetizers, main course including two salads, two desserts. It was worth it all though as we had a great time and the food was great. I was looking for an alternative to my usual mashed potatoes and decided to take the extra steps to make the potatoes special. Twice baked potatoes have always been a big favorite around here and just placing them on the table gets ahs all around. Baking the potatoes instead of peeling and boiling them adds flavor and texture. You can buy these pre-made at the grocery but come-on, a few minutes more and your kids will thank you for your effort. Make a ton because they will disappear fast, and they also freeze nicely.


    • 6 medium potatoes, baked
    • 0.75 cup sour cream
    • 4 Tb butter, salted
    • 1 pinch salt and pepper to taste
    • 0.125 tsp paprika, sweet


    1. Baked potatoes until fork tender. Cool slightly and cut in half. Carefully scoop the potato out of the skins, keeping the skins whole. Mash potatoes in a bowl, adding the butter and sour cream. Add salt and pepper to taste, fill potato skins with the mashed potatoes and sprinkle the top with paprika. May be made in advance then heated in warm oven.

      I have used this recipe several time with different variations of spice. It is a good base recipe to build from.
