The delicious side dish from Karol Chandler-Ezell of Nacogdoches, Texas is flavored with bacon and cheddar, and has just a hint of Dijon mustard. And since they take under 30 minutes, they're perfect for a quick weeknight dinner.
This is a perfect recipe for two, but I also prepare it in large quantities for special occasions when we have dinner guests. One of these potatoes is practically a meal in itself.

One of the things I like about twice-baked potatoes is that they are very versatile. They can be served as a complement to an entree, or they can be the main course with a salad. Either way, they are tasty.
Meet the Cook: Back when I was teaching elementary school (I'm now a busy stay-at-home mom to our two youngsters, 7 and 2), my class would put together a Mother's Day cookbook. Many of the dishes are still my favorites - this one included.

I've used these rich potatoes as both an appetizer and side dish. Guests seem to enjoy the distinctive taste of Monterey Jack cheese and basil. These satisfying mouthfuls are perfect for a late-afternoon or evening get-together when something a little heartier is needed.
