Twice baked potatoes are so easy to make especially with help from Philadelphia cream cheese spread. I salt and pepper the potato skins for extra flavor. The filling is mixed with Philly chive and onion cream cheese spread, sharp cheddar cheese, a tad of butter and a bit of salt. It’s fluffy and creamy with just the right amount of tang from the cream cheese. It’s an easy side dish to put together that is full of flavor. #spreadtheflavor
Twice Baked Potatoes with Philly Chive & Onion
Prep: 15 minutes Bake: 70mins Serves: 8
4 medium russet potatoes
4 oz Philadelphia Chive and Onion Cream Cheese Spread
4 Tbs salted butter
½ C sharp cheddar cheese, plus extra to top the potatoes
1-2 tbs milk
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Wash and dry potatoes well. Use a fork and poke holes all over the potato. Lay each potato on a sheet of foil, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with a generous amount of kosher salt and black pepper. Wrap the potato in foil and lay on a baking sheet.
- Bake potatoes on middle rack for 60 minutes or until fork tender.
- Remove from oven and cut each potato in half lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop out the center of the potato into a medium bowl, leaving a thin layer of potato on the skin.
- Add butter, cream cheese, cheddar cheese and season with salt to taste. Add 1 to 2 tbs of milk and mix well. Fill the potato skins with filling and top with more cheddar cheese. Bake for an additional 10 minutes.
- Remove from oven, garnish with chives and serve immediately.
I found all of my ingredients at my local Walmart which was a huge time saver for me.
I think I’ll use the remaining half of my cream cheese spread to make a cucumber sandwich for lunch. A light smear of chive and onion cream cheese on two pieces of white bread (with the crust cut off) and a layer of thinly sliced cucumbers sounds refreshing light but flavorful. Perfect for a lunch or a bridal shower or tea.
