If you’ve got thirty minutes, you’ve got time to whip up these Twice Baked Cubano Stuffed Potatoes. They’re stuffed with diced ham, cheese, pickles and mustard.
I’m just like most of you. It’s 3:15, you’re picking the kids up from school, handing them a snack and wondering what in the world you are going to make for dinner.
Dinner? Who has time for dinner these days? Between gymnastics, cheerleading and baseball practice, I barely have time to think of what’s for dinner.

It only takes thirty quick minutes to make these Twice Baked Cubano Stuffed Potatoes and they’re so dang good!
The most important time of day for us is dinner time.
It’s the time after all the chaos of our day, to sit down as a family at the table and connect with one another.
Questions of, “how was your day?” “What did you do?” go around the circle with everyone chiming in.
So, when it comes to planning dinner, on a night we have a lot of activities, I like to keep it simple.
Recently while shopping at Meijer, I picked up a few packages of Smithfield Anytime Favorites Diced Ham.

HOW TO MAKE THESE QUICK TWICE STUFFED POTATOES
- Start by placing your baking potatoes into the microwave for 12 minutes.
- Meanwhile, into a bowl, add cream cheese and Smithfield Anytime Favorites Diced Ham.
- Next, add in mustard, cumin, garlic powder, pickles and swiss cheese. Mix to combine
- Once the potatoes are cooled, cut in half lengthwise and scrap out the middles, leaving a border.
- Add the potatoes to the cream cheese mixture and stir to combine.
- Truth be told, I could eat this bowl as is and call it twice baked mashed potatoes!
Add potato mixture into the wells of the potatoes and top with additional Swiss cheese.
Place into the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and potatoes are warmed through.
Serve with additional mustard if you’re into that sort of thing.
These Twice Baked Cubano Stuffed Potatoes are fantastic!
They’re super cheesy, have the flavors of a Cubano sandwich and the diced ham brings the entire filling together to make for one tasty dinner.
We like to serve baked potatoes with a simple salad to round out the meal.
CAN YOU MAKE THESE TWICE BAKED POTATOES AHEAD OF TIME?
Yes. You can make these ahead of time, wrap tightly and place into the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Top them with the cheese right before baking.
Yes, you can freeze stuffed potatoes. Simply place filled potatoes into freezer and freeze until solid, about 1 hour. Wrap potatoes into saran wrap or foil and then place into a freezer bag or storage container and freeze for up to 3 months.
TIPS FOR THE PERFECT TWICE BAKED POTATO
Scrub the outside of your potatoes with water to wash and pat dry
Rub olive oil all over the potatoes and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Afterall, you can eat the skin of the potato so it might as well taste good too!
Make sure to prick the potato all over with a fork so that it has room for the steam to escape and the potatoes cook evenly.
Flip the potatoes half way through cooking.
If you do not have a microwave, you can still make these twice baked potatoes by cooking them in the oven at 400 degrees F for 1 hour, turning every 20 minutes.
Smithfield Anytime Favorites Diced Ham is great for lunch, dinner time solutions and snack trays. We love to add the diced ham to our charcuterie boards for holiday entertaining.
