Twice-Baked Potato Casserole Tips
What's the quickest way to peel raw potatoes?
The quickest way to peel raw potatoes is to boil them first before peeling. To start, using a knife, make a score line through the skin around the center of each potato. Place your potatoes in boiling water and let them boil until cooked. Place the potatoes in cold water until cool enough to handle, then simply slide the skin off with your fingers.
Can you overbake potatoes?
Yes, you can overbake potatoes! You'll know if they've baked too long if the skin gets wrinkly, the bottoms are charred and the insides appear gummy. Perfectly baked potatoes
usually have an interior temperature of somewhere between 205 and 212 degrees Fahrenheit.
