This recipe starts with baked potatoes, so make sure you plan ahead with time to bake and cool them or make them in an Instant Pot.
START by cleaning and baking 5 medium sized potatoes, pierced with a fork and wrapped in tinfoil at 375 F. Cool to room temperature or refrigerate ahead.
SCOOP middles of potatoes carefully out with a spoon and place the potato skins on a baking sheet, reserving the potato middles separately in a mixing bowl.
MASH potatoes with a fork or potato masher until mostly smooth.
ADD the fillings: Boursin cheese, cheddar cheese, spices, cottage cheese, sour cream, and melted butter.
MIX up potato filling thoroughly.
FILL potato skins with the filling carefully using a large spoon. Depending on the size of the potatoes, you'll need ¼ cup to ½ cup of filling per potato.
BAKE potatoes at 350 for 15-20 minutes, until warm through, cheese is melted, and potato skins are starting to crisp on the outside.
TOP with chopped green onions and/or as many bacon crumbles as your heart desires!
How do you store Twice Baked Potatoes?
Once prepared, these potatoes can be refrigerated for up to 3 days before baking the second time.
TO FREEZE simply follow the recipe without baking the second time, and store the prepared boursin stuffed potatoes in an airtight container and freeze until ready to bake.
Then bake (still frozen) at 400 F covered with tinfoil for 30-40 minutes, until warm through.
You can also thaw them completely in a refrigerator a day ahead and bake them as directed in the recipe.
