Whenever I make some filets for the family, I always make these Twice-Baked Potatoes as a side. It is an easy recipe to double and they taste better than any restaurant potatoes!
2 large baking potatoes
1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon butter
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup milk
2 egg yolks
1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Rub the skins of the potatoes with 1 teaspoon of butter, then sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of salt. Pierce each potato with a fork and place directly on the oven rack. Bake for 1 hour or until a fork slides easily into the potato. Remove from oven and very carefully cut a small portion of the top off. Using a spoon, scoop out the insides of the potatoes and place in a bowl. Add 1 Tablespoon of butter, salt, milk, egg yolks, pepper, and half of cheese. Stuff the potatoes with the filling. Sprinkle cheese on the top and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
