BBQ season I love it! Anything on the grill this time of year is the BEST! We also like to use our smoker a lot, all year round, but these warmer temps got us going to “flavour town”.

Typically I am all about the salads when it comes to the grill, however, I do like a potato side. Whether that is roasted potatoes, baked potatoes, or these Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes, I don’t normally skip the potatoes.

HOW TO MAKE TWICE BAKED POTATOES

  1. Prepare potatoes in the microwave (average potato takes 7 mins, flipping halfway thru… add by the minute after 7, if need be until done). Remove potato from microwave and let stand and cool for approximately a half-hour.
  2. Once potatoes have cooled cut the potatoes in half length-wise.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  4. Scoop out the inside of the potato, and try to leave some potato on the outer edges of the skin to allow the potato to stand more firmly when you fill them.
  5. In a small mixing bowl add scooped potato with the butter. Mash that all together with a fork.
  6. In a larger mixing bowl, mix together your Greek yogurt, green onions, bacon bits, sharp cheddar cheese, salt, and pepper.
  7. Add your mashed potato to the Greek yogurt mixture and mix everything in using a fork.
  8. Once everything is well combined using a soup spoon, scoop a heaping amount of mashed potato mixture back into the potato skins.
