Twice Baked Potatoes

Nick prepared these for our Valentine's Day feast, they are the perfect side to some hearty steak.

4 russet potatoes, skin washed and poked with a fork
2 tbsp butter, room temperature
2 tbsp sour cream (optional)
1 cup of milk
Garlic powder, garlic salt, and ground black peppercorn to taste
2 tbsp of green onions
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
2. Place the potatoes in the oven and bake for 1 hour
3. Remove the potatoes from the oven. Slice them in half lengthwise. Spoon out the insides of the potatoes, trying your best to keep the skin in tact. Place all the potato insides in a separate bowl.
4. Add the butter, optional sour cream, milk, and spices and whisk the potatoes to combine well. Add the green onions and stir together well to form mashed potatoes.
5. Spoon out the mashed potatoes into the skins of the potatoes, making sure each skin is completely filled with mashies.
6. Top off the stuffed potatoes with some cheddar cheese.
7. Place potatoes back in the oven and bake for another 15 minutes until the cheese has fully melted.
8. Serve along side your favorite meal. Enjoy!
