  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Use a fork to pierce the potato skins.
  2. Bake the potatoes unwrapped for about 1 hour, or until soft, in the preheated oven.
  3. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  4. Over medium-low heat melt the butter in a large saucepan. Combine onion, mushrooms, red pepper, garlic powder, pepper, chives and salt. Cook slowly, stirring occasionally until the onions are soft.
  5. Slice open the baked potatoes and, keeping the skins intact, scoop the insides into a medium bowl. Transfer the onion mixture to the bowl. Mix in the sour cream. Pour in 1/2 of the cheese and continue mixing until all ingredients are well blended.
  6. Using a large spoon, fill the potato skins with the mixture. Top with bread crumbs, the remaining cheese and bacon.
  7. Return the potatoes to the preheated oven and continue baking for about 15 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the filling is slightly brown.

A great alternative to the usual baked potato. It takes a little more time, but is so good! I used reduced fat sour cream, 2% cheddar cheese and less butter and it was still delicious! I woul...

Outstanding baked potatoes, even if you leave out the red pepper and the mushrooms, as I did. Thanks for sharing Jamie.

These have the potential to be FABULOUS, but they were way too spicy for our family's taste. We have two little ones at home who couldn't even begin to eat these. I generally like spicy foods,...

Best twice baked taters I have ever had!! Needed to reduce the red pepper though...too much for our taste.

Im just learning to cook, and this recipe was very simple to follow. They turned out great and my guests loved them, they even asked for the recipe! The first batch I made though, the fillin...

Yuck! I normally love twice-baked potatoes, but this recipe was not the best. Too much onion, too much red pepper, and too much black pepper (and I had cut them down to begin with). I also us...

This is definitely the best twice-baked potato receipe that I have came across. If you don't like hot/spicy foods, I would suggest that you use less red pepper. Also, I omit the bread crumb to...
