Double Baked Potatoes

Here’s my world famous double baked potatoes. Well they’re not really world famous but might be once I build up this site. How about if I just say my Chicago famous baked potatoes for now and we’ll just see what happens.

As you know baked potatoes can be stuffed or topped with a variety of different ingredient. Sometimes I’ll throw in a little chopped broccoli and top them with a little cheddar cheese. But for now we’ll just make the basic recipe.

Did I mention that these were my world famous double baked potatoes?


  • 6 large white baking potatoes
  • 1 small bunch of long green onions chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
  • 2 Tbls of bacon bits
  • 3 Tbls of butter
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • 1/4 cup of chicken broth
  • 1 Tbls of paprika


  • Wash and wrap the potatoes in aluminum foil and make sure you poke holes in the top of the potatoes.
  • Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Bake the potatoes for 1 hour.
  • Saute the onions and garlic for 2 minutes in one tablespoon of butter.
  • Remove the foil and slice the potatoes lengthwise and scoop out the inside of the potato leaving some inside to form a shell.
  • In a large bowl mix the potatoes with the garlic and onion mixture, the remaining butter and the bacon bits, sour cream, milk and chicken broth.
  • Mix thoroughly but don’t mash to the consistency of mashed potatoes.
  • Fill the shells up with the mixture and sprinkle the top with the paprika.
  • Place them on a cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes in 350 degree oven.

    Best served with steaks, chops or a nice roast beef. Serves 4
