This twice-baked potato recipe is one I created together with my granddaughter, Lydia, many many years ago. She loves mashed potatoes. She loves cheese.

So, together we mixed several recipes and came up with her own version. Below, she shows off her creations throughout the years. So very delicious! She's served them for her own birthday dinner parties, something we love to do together. 

Lydia's Twice Baked Potato Recipe that she's been making since she's been a little girl. Her favorite ... and mine!

This is definitely not a traditional German recipe, but it made our "German taste buds" sit up and take notice!

These are absolutely delicious served with almost any meal. In fact, they'd make a nice lunch with a salad on the side. 

They are best served right from the oven

We made enough for our party of six, but you can adjust the recipe accordingly.

Here's the first time Lydia made these. This photo was taken several minutes after they came out of the oven. Even though they collapsed, they tasted great!
