I’ve labeled this recipe as a side dish but I’ve had a baked potato as my meal many times. The baked potato is a nice compliment to a meal but can also serve as a complete dish when filled with the right stuff.

How to Choose a Baked Potato

I start by choosing nice fat potatoes instead of long skinny ones. Twice baked potatoes usually turn out better when they’re fatter in the middle. The fat center makes it easier to scoop out the insides and place them back when you’ve finished mixing up the inside.
