Maggie’s Twice Baked Potato

What’s better than a spiced baked potato? A TWICE baked potato. First, you bake it so the inside gets nice and tender on the inside. Then you can add delicious ingredients and put it back inside to bake once again. What decadent way to enjoy an already delicious side dish! Get creative with your favourite ingredients. Try with different potatoes. Russets work well because they are starchy and sturdy enough to withstand the extra baking time. And don’t forget to add your favourite toppings like sour cream or a scoop of homemade chili with Maggie’s Cajun Seasoning!
