These mini Twice Baked Potatoes are a simple appetizer or even side dish that everyone will love — creamy, perfectly seasoned, cheesy potatoes stuffed inside a tender potato shell!
I love, love, love (love, love, love, love) comfort food.
And I love twice baked potatoes.
We don’t have mashed potatoes very often (mostly because I’m too lazy to mash perfectly tasty potatoes!), but when we do it’s a treat. Twice baked potatoes are even more of a treat! And everything little is better than the original, right?
I also love potatoes. They’re so creamy and comforting and they also offer great nutritional value at the same time. They’re definitely my favorite vegetable!
I resisted the urge to add all kinds of naughty things to these twice baked potatoes because (a) it’s January and (b) these potatoes are so good on their own! You can load them up with whatever you want, but they’re perfectly delicious as is. I added a sprinkle of cheese on top (because cheese), and they’re the perfect little game day bite!
There’s one thing that I think makes these potatoes extra special and it’s the seasoning packs from The Little Potato Company Oven-Ready packs. I use herbs and spices a lot in my food, and yet I’ve never come close to replicating these little spice packs! I love picking up whichever one I’m in the mood for — it adds a big punch of flavor to your potatoes (however you’re using them!).
You can absolutely pick up a bag of Baby Boomers or Blushing Belles and cook those up and use those with your own seasoning blend — they will work perfectly! But I made these for my daughter’s (first!) birthday party and I wanted something quick and easy. I love that I just have to tear the plastic off the tray and pop them in the oven to get them going while I was working on the other 1 million things on my to-do list for her party.

Mini Twice Baked Potatoes
- 1 Garlic Herb Oven Ready pack from The Little Potato Company or about 1 pound Little Potatoes
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 1/2 Garlic Herb seasoning pack or more — to taste
- 1/8 cup 1% milk
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1//2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- Remove foil tray of the Oven Ready pack and tear off plastic film. Toss potatoes with oil and bake at 400 degrees F for 30 minutes or until tender (reserving the seasoning pack instead of stirring it in).
- Remove potatoes from the oven and cool to room temperature. Slice the top off each potato, then scoop out most of the flesh using a small spoon or paring knife.
- Mash potato flesh with ½ Garlic Herb seasoning pack, milk, and salt. Add more seasoning or salt as desired. Fill potato shells with mashed potato mixture and sprinkle with cheese. (*To make ahead: cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to bake, up to 24 hours).
- Bake at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes or until light golden brown on top.
