Twice-Baked Potatoes A Recipe by Mike Hartner

The benefit to making twice-baked potatoes is that you also get mashed potatoes from the recipe and potato skins, depending on your taste.

My son and I like the skins, and everyone likes the twice-baked potatoes. 

The recipe is fairly easy.

Twice-Baked Potatoes

Potatoes (I use about 12 – 15 at a time).  But I’m feeding five, so judge your numbers and interest.  Each potato makes two twice-baked potato.

potato11. Bake the potatoes. (1 hr +/- 375)

potato32. Scoop out the potato, being careful not to destroy the skin. (A small amount of potato on the side does not hurt) And place into a mixing bowl.

3. Add about 1/3 cup butter and let it melt into the hot potato flesh in your mixing bowl.

4.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  I add paprika, and cayenne… experiment.

6. Taste, and then add more slat and pepper according to your palate.

7. Fill potato skins 3/4 with mashed potatoes from the mixing bowl.

I, Walter by Mike Hartner

I, Walter is the first in a series of books in a saga which will span continents and time to arrive in present day North America. 

Each in the series will be connected, though that connection may not be obvious for several more books.  

It’s almost like looking at a menorah (sic). Many lines, seemingly individual, connect to center at different points. 

Walter Crofter was born into Elizabethan England.

In a country and a time where favor and politics were both deadly, can an honest boy stay true to himself?

Especially given his family background?
