When I was a little girl I loved to go to my grandparents house for Sunday dinners. They lived on lake Michigan, so we would eat great food and then go splash on the beach – it doesn’t get much better than that when you’re a kid.
My grandma was an amazing cook and I especially loved her twice baked potatoes. While the original version has cheddar, parmesan and tomatoes, I’ve probably made them 100 different ways.
Since my grandma passed, my dad has perfected the art of her twice baked potatoes. Lucky for you he has shared his potato making skills with me – although this cheesy bacon version is all my own. I’m stepping it up a bit with gooey gruyere, caramelized shallots, and of course bacon!
the 4th was already in the Mr.’s stomach before I even got my camera out.
These are perfect for entertaining since you can make them up the day before and just pop them in the oven for the 2nd baking.
