Twice-Baked Potato with Spinach and Sausage

Family time finally takes centre stage over the holidays and what could be more fun than working as a team to make these gourmet twice-baked potatoes?

You’ll Need

  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 1 head of garlic
  • 4 chorizo or sweet Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1 package frozen spinach, thawed and drained
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 3 Tbsp chopped chives
  • Salt and pepper

Prep and Cook

  • 1
    Pre-heat the oven to 400°F. Pierce the potatoes with a fork, slice the top off the head of garlic and bake both on oven rack until tender, about 1 hour for the potatoes and 25-30 minutes for the garlic. Cool for 15 minutes.
  • 2
    While the potatoes are baking, set a skillet over medium high heat and cook the sausage meat. When it begins to brown add the drained spinach and sauté until the meat is cooked through. Set aside.
  • 3
    Slice the potatoes in half lengthwise, scoop the potato flesh into a medium sized bowl, leaving a thin ½” shell around the potato skin. Set aside ½ cup potato flesh. Reserve this for another use. Add the milk, butter, roasted garlic and ¾ cup of cheese. Season with salt and pepper and add the chives. Mix well. Stir in the sausage and spinach mixture.
  • 4
    Scoop the filling back into the potatoes and place them on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with the remaining ¼ cup cheese and baked until heated through, about 20 minutes.
