Twice Baked Potatoes

I took this picture after I made some twice baked potatoes one night.  I had every intention of writing down  what I did because I didn't follow a recipe or anything.  Of course, it's more than a month later and that never happened.  You should google a recipe and make them tonight, or experiement and create your own recipe.  (Then share it with me!)
