Twice-Baked Potato Cups

by elyn_ryn

These twice-baked potato cups are just like their familiar cousin, the twice-baked potato. These potatoes are placed into ramekin cups for a twist on the classic twice-baked potato.

Baking potatoes are first brushed with olive oil and then coated in coarse ground salt.

The salt is supposed to pull out moisture from the potatoes as they bake and leave them light and fluffy.

People get excited about having their own little bowl of potatoes! Maybe it is because they are used to eating twice-baked potatoes in a potato jacket and this is a new way to dine on a classic food.

I think they taste better because they stay warm longer because no one is spooning out a heaping serving. Enjoy!
