Twice Baked Potatoes Recipe - These potatoes make any meal an event! They take baked potatoes to a whole new level of creamy, cheesy, buttery deliciousness. Easy enough to make ahead in stages, twice baked potatoes make an elegant side dish when entertaining!
Place your scrubbed potatoes into your Instant Pot along with 1/2 cup of water. Secure the lid of the Instant Pot and close the vent on the top of the lid. Press the steam button on the front of your Instant Pot and set the timer for 10 minutes. Allow the vent to release naturally and then carefully open the lid of the Instant Pot.
Place the potatoes onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Brush with olive oil and salt and allow them to rest for about 5 minutes to cool enough for handling. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and return the halves to the parchment lined baking sheet.
Using a metal spoon, scoop out the inside of the potato into a medium mixing bowl, leaving about 1/4-inch edge around the entire rim of the potato.
Once you have your potatoes scooped out into a separate bowl, add your butter and sour cream to the mixing bowl. Using a potato masher, mash the potatoes, butter and sour cream together until creamy. Then, stir in half of the cheese.
Spoon the filling into the scooped out potatoes and top the potatoes with the remaining cheese. If you are using bacon, then also top with your cooked bacon crumbles.
Place in oven preheated to 350ºF and cook approximately 15 minutes. Serve warm.
