We all love a baked potato, right? But twice baked potatoes are a whole other level.
Now you may be asking, what is a twice baked potato? Well it's exactly what it states really.
You bake the potato as normal. Then when cooked, you cut in half, scoop out the potato flesh, mash it or mix it with desired ingredients.
Here I use bacon and sour cream. Add it back to the potato, top with some cheese and place it bake in the oven till the cheese is melted and viola - a twice baked potato. Yes it really is that easy.
Sour cream and potato is a perfect match, but I understand sometimes you just do not want to use any fat. If that is the case you can mix some fat free plain yogurt with lemon juice, but if you want my honest opinion, although still nice, it isn't and doesn't really taste like sour cream.
I like to serve this up with a nice mixed salad, but they are great as a side to a main meal too. Especially a nice grilled steak or chicken breast.
Or if you are looking for some other ideas to serve with, how about some of these delicious main dishes:

How can fat free sour cream be 3 syns ??? !!!
because although it is fat free, it still has calories and doesnt qualify for a free food allowance 🙂
The SW Syns online tool says it's 1/2 syn/ per tbsp.
could you use fromage frais instead of the sour cream. Save on the sins! Please could someone give some advice! Thanks
Yep sure, you will not get that sour cream taste, but it will work fine.
