Loaded Twice Baked Potatoes

Loaded Twice Baked Potatoes

WARNING: please eat these sparingly. =)  These are seriously amazing, just not totally healthy.  They remind me of the delicious cheese fries you can get at Outback Steakhouse or Texas Roadhouse, they are oh so good just not oh so good for you =).  It’s the holidays after all right?  I love these potatoes!  My grandpa was a potato farmer so my family has always been a big time meat and potatoes family.  And trust me my mom makes the best mashed potatoes on the planet!  You can also leaved these potatoes unloaded, without all the extra topping just the cheese and seasoning.  But, for a special occasion, I think you are going to want to load them =).  Enjoy!
