Bake them until they feel firm
Bake them until they feel firm
This recipe doesn't have a special story or any memories, I happened to find it on the internet and I revised it  a little bit and my family loves it !! I just wanted to share this  with all of you.
The original recipe was called " Twice Baked Potatoes" but I changed it to "Stuff Potatoes".
Ingredients of original recipe:
Large potatoes
If cooking for two you will need 4 potatoes
If cooking for 4 you will need 6 potatoes (2 potatoes a person )
1 pint sour cream
1/2 cup chives or chopped green onions
1 cup cheddar cheese
1/2 cup butter or margarine
Parmesan cheese

My ingredients for 6 large potatoes
Potatoes as above
1 pint of Greek plain yogurt
1 cup shredded Gouda cheese
1/2 cup of butter
1/2 cup green onions
4 tablespoons of olive oil
Parmesan Cheese

And my instructions:
Before you bake clean the potatoes. ( I use a sponge and scrub them under running water) get all the soil off the potatoes.
Bake them whole until the potatoes feel soft to your touch, once they are ready take them out and let them cool or else you wil not be able to handle them.
Cut them in half  and scoop out the potato, don't scoop out too much or you will ruin it.

Once you have scooped out the potato, mash them very well in a bowl or a pot. I always prefer a pot, I find it more convenient.

Saute the green onions
