How to Reheat Twice Baked Potatoes  

So you have cooked potatoes twice to make your savory twice-baked potatoes. There were several left over and you put them in the refrigerator.  You wonder if you can cook your potatoes again, and have thrice-baked potatoes.

You can reheat your twice-baked potatoes in the microwave oven and they will turn out just about perfect. If you don’t have a microwave, you can reheat your twice-baked potatoes in the conventional oven or the toaster oven. If you don’t have any other options, you can reheat your twice-baked potatoes on the stovetop.

How to Prepare Your Twice-Baked Potatoes for Reheating

Your potatoes have been through a lot. They have been baked twice and each time the skins have suffered damage. It is like shaving too much and your skin gets red and flakey. Inspect your potatoes to make sure the skins are intact.

If your potato skins are getting thin and wrinkly, put a butter salve on them. Get a stick of butter and rub it on the spots that the skin is getting thin. This will help protect your potato from the damage that might occur cooking them for a third time.

Another way you can prepare your skins for further cooking is to rub peanut butter on the skins. It is the same color as the skins and will protect them from further damage.
