Twice Baked Potatoes with Secret Ingredient Giveaway!

I love potatoes! Don't you? I have them often and this is one of my favorite things to do with them.

Twice Baked Potatoes

5 potatoes
1-2 Tablespoons Alpine Touch (SECRET INGREDIENT)
2 Tablespoons butter
1/3 cup milk
3/4 cup cheddar cheese
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese

Bake potatoes at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Slice potatoes in half and scoop out insides in a mixing bowl. Add all ingredients but cheddar cheese. Mix with mixer until consistency of mashed potatoes. Scoop mixture back into shells, place in oven safe dish, and cover with cheddar cheese. Place in oven and bake until cheese has melted. Serve and enjoy!

You didn't need the recipe I am sure, but let me tell you if you make it with Alpine Touch you will never make it any other way. I use Alpine Touch in all my potato dishes. I use it especially in my mashed potatoes. It is the best. You too can have your very own bottle of Alpine Touch if you are the lucky winner.

How to win your Alpine Touch seasoning:
Simply leave a comment telling me what is your favorite seasoning to use besides salt and pepper. In 10 days I will announce the winner! Happy cooking! Thanks for stopping!



  1. You always post the most delicious things!

  2. This probably doesn't say much about my cooking skills but I love to use Morton's Nature's Seasons Seasoning Blend, just wish they would make without salt. This Alpine Touch sounds intriguing.

  3. YUM! Twice Baked Tators!

    I grew up on them only Mom took the 'fancy/lazy' way out with the little foils shells!

    Thank for sharing your recipe WITH secret ingredient!

    As for my favourite? It really depends upon the 'season' - no pun intend!

    I go through periods of curry...or dill...or cumin!

    I've also been on a kick of using hot chili sauce and/or paste!

  4. My favorite seasoning would have to be thyme (does that count, even though it's an herb?).

  5. I love twice baked potato. Yum!
    My favourite seasoning is celery salt...can't used it enough!

  6. Twice Baked potatoes have been on my birthday dinner menu for years and years now... and I am making them this week. I will have to find some Alpine Touch to make them this year!

    I think my favorite seasoning is Mrs. Dash. I love putting the teeniest bit on all my veggies and it cuts out the salt and the use of lots of butter. Makes veggies delish and healthy!

  7. Can you believe I've never made twice baked potatoes and I've never heard of Alpine Touch before. I'll have to go Google it! The potatoes look delicious!

  8. I certainly don't need to be asked twice if I want potatoes! I love them in any shape, size and colour. Now you have me very interested in your special ingredient - and to improve mash? Now you talking my language, I could live on mash alone!
    Thanks for the invite, I am so glad I came - you have a wonderful blog. Will be here often.

  9. I love sugar!!!!!!!!!!!!!lol I better win.

  10. As anyone could tell by reading my site my all time favorite is Johnny's Garlic Seasoning...

  11. Potatoes look yummy. I must make a note about the pizza place you mentioned in Phoenix for the next time we take a trip out there. We don't have one scheduled at the moment, so no clue when we might get back out that way.

    My favorite way to fix potatoes, is what I call broasted. Wash and cut (I usually use redskins), to whatever size you want...I generally get 8 pieces per potato, spray with pam or olive oil lightly, add onion and green peppers. Cover with foil and bake about 20 minutes on 375, then remove foil for 10-15 until lightly browned. Check for softness/doneness

    Quick and easy, no mess no fuss, my kind of cooking.

  12. I put some spicy breakfast sausage in twice baked potatoes once. It was pretty good. My favorite seasoning is Tony Chacheres Creole seasoning. If I win Alpine touch I will try it too!

  13. These are fabulous!!! love the taters, thanks for visiting my blog, and of course, spices begin and end with GARLIC!!!

    oh, maybe Chipotle pepper

  14. I put parsley in/on everything! It's not really a "spice" but that's my favorite ingredient after s&p!

  15. I am the potato queen ~ love them (and I'm not supposed to eat them).

    My very favorite seasoning is Montreal steak seasoning ~ I put it on everything!


  16. I absolutely love Cavender's, it is a wonderful Greek seasoning that goes well on pork and of course potatoes! Your recipe sounds wonderful.

  17. oooh....Is there ANYTHING better than Cajun seasoning? The best. Makes any dish pop!
