Lacey's recipe for
Bacon and Cheddar Twice Baked Potatoes
with roasted garlic

4-6 large baking potatoes
1 bulb roasted garlic
1 pint light or heavy cream
2 cups Sour Cream
1-1 1/2 jars real bacon bits
4 cups of shredded cheddar cheese

Roast garlic (Cut off top, make a little cup with tin foil and place garlic in the middle, sprinkle with salt,
drizzle with olive oil,wrap tin foil around garlic and bake in oven until desired doneness. Roast longer for a sweeter,
less intense garlic flavor. Take care not to burn or garlic will be bitter.)
Wash potatoes and rub generously with salt.

Wrap in tin foil and bake until done.
Remove from oven and allow potatoes to cool.
Slice in half, scoop out most of the insides and put into large bowl.
Rub a clove or two of the roasted garlic on the outside of the skins.
Add roasted garlic (chop or smash the garlic first), cream, a couple spoonfuls of
sour cream (more or less depending on taste or moisture needed.)
If more moisture is needed for mixing add a splash of liquid (milk, cream, sour cream or butter.)
