  2. Joshua Murtz

    Hey I resemble that short comment. Lol this is wonderful.

  3. Ariyeh Levy

    I love you….

  4. perduk1

    I use sour cream instead of butter. I also put a generous helping of cooked salad shrimp and fresh crab to the mixture. A little shot of Old Bay, too.

  6. Lyudmil Guenov

    Wow you make me love cooking more

  7. christschool

    Maybe a little panko on the top, before the melted butter?

  8. Michelle Sunshinestar

    LOL, I’m short, 5’1 Thank you, I’m making this tonight. I have different ingredients. Like I’m adding canned peas.

  9. Mike Gehre

    Yum….love those twice baked – “uber tubers!”

  10. Natalia Marcadella

    screw chef john

  11. drottercat

    Very nice. If I may be so bold – these things look extra special when you make a smooth mash and pipe it into shells with a star-shaped pastry pipe.

  12. Stan Lee

    save the lids and make potatoes skins out of them

  13. Edith Metz

    Short and fat is always better than long and skinny….😂🤣😂🤣
    Yeah 😎😎

  14. Robert Marshall

    I always wondered how they made the potatoes stack so high and now I know.

  15. shane smith


  16. deadpoil always sunny

    I tend to eat the top with some cheese and bacon. I also mix sour cream green onion and cheese put it back in the oven. Topped with more cheese and bacon and add extra green onion.

  17. freakyflow

    Make people look at you as a potato god….I Make twice baked and add on Grated potato skin deep fried with Bacon ontop and slap on fresh dill from outside

  18. jimii jimii

    My potatoes aren’t as fat. Could I just bake it for 40 minutes the first bake?

  19. Old Yeller

    Damn, I LOVE twice Baked Potatoes!!
    I had Stuffed Potatoes at a fancy restaurant in Toronto, my Boyfriend took me to dinner for my 18th Birthday,
    and the potatoes were baked, scooped out of the shell, mixed with something that I still don’t know what it was,
    and piped back into the potato shell, and baked just until slightly brown on the ridges of the piping.
    They MELTED in your mouth!! SO SO GOOD!!
    I would PAY Big Time if I only knew how they were made.
    It was like they were made of whipped cream they were SO light and fluffy!
    And if they weren’t that good, they wouldn’t be the only part of the meal I still remember after all these years.
    If anyone has any ideas I would LOVE to hear them!

  20. tiger tiger

    potato overload

    this is great thank you

  42. Chris Adams

    I would like to see a potato recipe that is completely organic vegan using fresh vegetables I got an idea for a recipe using the twice baked method does not include vegan cheese there’s no such thing there’s top with a nice salad it would be really nice filling and healthy this will also help you immediately lose weight and gain muscle mass

  43. Seven Something

    Coat the outside. Coat the outside . . . coat the outside.

  44. Ryan Remers

    Is there a difference between baking a regular vs sweet potato

  62. Pascal Delisse

    Learning while having fun.
    Thank you much!

  63. Jeff Stanley

    I just cut the potatoes in half and add enough extra ingredients to the innards to make two stuffed halves. You only get one twice baked per potato and I get two. Great video presentation though.

    My family loves Chef John! Now whenever I tell my daughter that I’m making twice baked potatoes, she screams and does a dance of joy.

  77. username

    Side-dish, you humour me. In my circle of friends you could just make 2-4 pounds of these per person as the main dish and you’d have nothing left after 1 hr.

  78. KaL

    This….this is artistry.

  79. Karen Rudyk

    THE most awesome baked potato I have ever had.

  80. blondizsmilz

    Can’t wait to try this recipe! Thanks Chef John! and thanks for being so awesome and love your great personality!

  82. Alex Peña

    can you eat the potato skin?

  83. TheHamadanners

    Never trust a skiny chef😉

  84. Idomake

    I just started a diet. The FIRST one I’ve ever done. It has promise. You can eat anything you want as long as it’s a potato. Slice them, dice them, shred them, mash them, fry them, bake them, season them any way you wish. You can even have a tiny bit of butter or sour cream, as long as 95% of what is there, is potato!. This looks great!

  85. Marjorie Primo

    John I really wanted the guacamole recipe I am going to try making it thank you ever so much. Marjorie

  86. Ro G

    Find a wiki-bear clip from the Conan O’Brien show and tell me that his chef isn’t wiki-bear. I dare you!

  87. AzraelThanatos

    A nice alternate use of this type of thing is to prepare the initial part as he did, just put a little bit of shredded cheese in the main body of it before pushing the top down into it to boost the height. Then put in a bit of your favorite chili before you top it with the mashed potato part, great way for a chili potato…just make sure people know that chili is sealed inside so as not to leave a massive mess or cause burns.

  88. Dave McBroom

    the egg yolk is a nice touch.

  89. Yeggster Shane

    Thank you

  94. Buddy Lee

    Chef John has the perfect voice for these videos.

  95. judsonkr

    Thank you chef for not wrapping those potatoes in foil to bake them.

    I cannot seem to convice people I know that the worst thing they can to to a potatoe that they wish to bake is to wrap foil around it.

    I am not certain where that culinary sin originated, I am guessing the restaraunt industry, but it is a crime. If you want a good baked potatoe that is.

  96. Jc Longaire

    I forgot how much I enjoy these videos
    Bad jokes & all
    Thank you

    LMAO, “taller people make more money than short people”.. that was great..!! thanks Chef John.

  99. Food AF

    I made this 2 years ago with a twist of my own, and it was one of the best things ever!! For some reason I forgot about it, and it just popped into my head today. Had to find the video to thank you for the inspiration. Now I can’t wait to make this for the next episode. Thank you so much, and we will of course properly credit you!! A truly exceptional recipe, thank you! 👌

  100. arriesone1

    I love your sense of humor! And your food is the best!

  101. ShadowOfOurHearts

    your voice is far more entertaining to listen to than i ever could have imagined possible.

  102. Rufio DIES

    Chef John, I wish you taught all my classes when I was in Uni. Although your voice might have lulled me into sleep

  103. none ya business

    No cayenne pepper, please. Otherwise, perfect!

  104. Robert Roy

    Wow… That was amazing. Is this healthy (carbs) enough for people with diabetes?

  105. Ultracity6060

    I would definitely put some butter between the layers of skin. And maybe jalapeno. …Definitely jalapeno. And maybe habanero…

  106. Leigh Hartman

  107. Richard M

    You are a star. Love your videos

  108. In constant Battle

    amazing these twice baked potatoes I did it for my husband and mol and they loved it!

  109. hesthatguy

    I made these today to pair with a grilled steak and some grilled veggies. The egg yolk idea was fantastic. Instead of grated cheese I crumbled in some sharp cheddar by hand. It created yummly little pockets of cheese as you eat.

  110. zaid diaz

    By any chance you own a candy business?.

  111. psammiad

    Baked potatoes are really *not* suitable for a “fancy meal”, unless you have really low expectations of what fancy means. But it’s a great recipe – bonus is you could prepare these in advance and then just do the final 20 min cook in the oven.

  112. Simon Coppack

    Fun fact: you can put in some filling in first before putting in the removed piece of skin, allowing you to create a double-decker look or keep two different fillings separate!

  113. Sherry Osinga

    Freshhhhhhly ground black pepper

  114. Mermbo Nermberferv

    as an irish lass this channel pleases me , soo many potatoes x

  115. George Tempest

    Great thing to elevate the filling, I am always a bit disappointed when there isn’t enough to fill the spuds up to the brim. I do my mash mixed with canned tuna fish – divine :o)

  116. flexxarnnn

    Potatoes are the greatest tool on the planet

  117. Brandon M. Wilson

    Chef John really floors me. He makes the most nakedly dad-ish jokes in the world, but I find him hilarious.

  118. Demetrice Henderson

    OMG!!! I love Potatoes or Patatoes whichever,😙 but in a weird good way your a sick genius man. I can dream about putting in some extra ingredients like you recommend and putting them on a Grill, Indirect Style , YUM!!!!

    I think i watch Chef John more for the awesome dad jokes than the cooking.

  121. Oscar Cazares

    I should be studying

  122. JohnPavilonis

    I did this today and it was spectacular!!! I used Parisian cheese, smoked Gouda cheese, plus a little chopped garlic.

    Thanks for the recipe/technique!!!

    I don’t think a rapper will ever say dud spud or uber tuber.

  125. LetTheWritersWrite

    You are the stud of your twice baked spud.

  126. Love of God

    Looks great! Making it tonight for dinner, can’t wait!

  127. Augusta Sister

    tried the fondant potatoes….only wish my potatoes loving dad was still alive to try them…

  128. Atlas WalkedAway

    Heresy. Those lids get brushed with oil on the skin, get enough filling to come out just shy of pure crisp and they’re dipped in an accompanying stew or drizzled with meat drippings.

  129. Khristmas

    Dope new rhymes lmaooooooooooooooff

  130. Andrew Renshaw

    This guy sure loves Cayenne pepper.

  131. FlyingFoxy

    I made this today for my friends! We all loved it! (I put my extra cheese on top to caramelize as a personal preference though!)

  132. suzie bee

    your vids are the best

  133. Ima Dork

    I love your videos and you’re a great chef but your speaking intonations, sentence endings specifically, are so incredibly odd? Am I the only one?

  134. Patricia Hedegaard

    You make me laugh overtime I watch one of your episodes. Thanks for this one. Uber Tubers!

  135. Ratchet Russian

    Mine weren’t nearly as attractive, but delicious regardless.

  145. Udit Gupta

    of course, we are going to season it up with some Fresh-

  146. Yushi3100

    Chef John your videos are great and you really are funny. Sometimes i watch them just to lighten up my mood. 🙂 <3

  147. GXTitanium

    lmfao @ the comment about rappers looking for fresh rhymes hahahah

  148. Somebody Piano

    This recipe looks amazing and is great for feeding lots of people since it is so easy to make. I’m definitely going to make this for my family.

  149. Rondo'nun Yeri

    Check out “Kumpir”

  150. wjrasmussen666

    I made this last night. Potato fell apart when spooning out the contents and ended up with an open faced version!

    Used: butter, chopped green onion, milk, salt, pepper, 1 egg yolk, yogurt. Tasted great!!!!!!!!!!!!

  151. Amazingly Awkward

    I have to object! I’m 6’5″ and still single :'(

  152. wjrasmussen666

    How about using yogurt instead of milk/sour cream?

  153. Alyna Demosthenes

    his voice is so soothing

  154. raedwulf61

    Looks fantastic! We will try this!

  155. Latika Mani

    Thank you for the inspiration. I added cheese, chive n garlic butter as well as corn and red kidney beans to them. Made for a super yummy weeknight dinner.

  162. kaiju k

    I like to cook down some shallots and garlic in butter, no color and then mix that into the scooped taters and add cheese, tiny bit of sour cream and scallion then top w more cheese and bake 30 min. Yum

  163. ZeliardFTW

    Salt is the new fat! Down with Sodium! Skip it, throw it out! Leave it in the ocean! Salt is bad and don’t get salty because its TRUTH!

  164. leinaddf

  170. neothaka

    Any plans on coming to Taiwan to teach some classes soon?
    Also, I noticed that sneaky social critique you worked in there. Tall people Do get more benefits than short people.

  171. ArcIX

    Awesome commentary for a cooking video. Totally gonna subscribe.

  172. martinez1701a

    I was thinking pepper jack and bacon bits maybe try cream cheese instead of cream.

  173. Lucas Guillemette

    you sound like that sardonic vegan granny. hilarious

    Dope new rhymes 😂😂😂😂

  175. Laura Held

    Great video. Love you voice.

  176. Adam Energy

    wish you were visiting my kitchen twice a week , 😀

  177. Karl Z

    This is a fantastic video. I’ve been doing potato variations for 30 years and everything you’re showing is right on the money, just superb! Well done, which I hope you don’t do to the steak that would perfectly compliment these potatoes.

  178. JEFFC1958

    Oh chef John my wife and I made your twice baked potatoes they were awesome. You da man!


    Thanks for sharing

  180. Robert DuPre

    Half the reason I watch his videos is for the rimshot! “Why have a dud spud when you can have an uber tuber!” “You are the big Willie of your chili!” Love it John. Keep it up. Hi from Wayne County! Let me know if you want to go catch a few fish out on Seneca sometime. Some good hometown stuff never hurts!

  181. tom jackson

    A bit of crab meat makes it mighty tasty.

    1. PumpkinEskobarr

      Oooo you wicked!
      I like the way you think.

  182. bucky13

    This may be the first thing I actually have the motivation to make. Seems easy enough, and I really really love potatoes.

  183. Ray Marcusen

    His voice is so soothing…..

  184. Reginald And Yahqyrah

    LOLOLOL!!! Awesome Chef John!

  185. Carl McGee

    …He shoots, He SCORES!!!👏👏👏

  186. rally618

    Funny when he said to add salt and pepper and I said Cayenne and he put it in next LOL
    He must dream of Cayenne when he sleeps.Looks good,could do anything with these 🙂

  187. HelenaMikas

    A meal in it self … I love spuds and your channel *

  188. Beppe Sapone

    Yum 2

  189. Bill Mayhew

    My variation is to use sour cream instead of the cream (maybe egg yoke), but definately add bacon! Top with cheese too.

  190. Sylvia Fisher


  191. Michael Granados

    should’ve added cheese on top

  192. Jane Soper

    I love your videos! Favourite cooking channel for sure!

  193. Janna Maglinao

  199. Ashley L

    my favourite way to eat potatoes, right here.

  203. Bill

    I always wanted to see how these Twice Baked Potatoes are made. My sister made it with Chow Siu in the mix with green onions and it was great. Thanks again and I’ll try to make is soon..

  204. Eisdax

    Thank god I bought potatoes, I have to try this!

  205. Robert Doty

    Are any linguists watching this? I’d like to know where this guy’s accent is from. Don’t get me wrong…I love his videos, and he always shows us how to prepare super food! But…I can’t pin down his accent! His speech does the opposite of what a Valley Girl would do, with her (very annoying) rising emphasis at the end of a sentence that makes them sound like they’re perpetually asking a question. His accent is not the same at all. Yet, there’s something about the sound of the end of his sentences that I can’t quite pin down. It’s an odd accent. If anyone can shed light on this, it would be appreciated! In the meantime, I’m going to make some twice baked potatoes! 😉

    1. Ocher Velvet

      Robert Doty, He mentioned in another video that when he’s laying down narration after filming, he pieces it together from many different takes, so the speech rhythms we hear in the finished videos are artificial. I just watched an extended interview with him (also here on YouTube), and his regular speaking voice has none of the little upswings at the end of sentences. Which is a bit of a disconnect, since they’re such a notable and consistent feature of his videos, but he’s still the same funny Chef John.

    2. The Effortless Naturalista

      He has a radio voice to me. I love the way he talks. Reminds me of someone’s on NPR’s “All Things Considered” or CBS’ Sunday morning show. My guess is he’s from somewhere in New England but has radio/voiceover training.

    3. Chrisanna Daye

      Robert Doty I can’t shed light on the accent but I HAVE to tell you to watch his baklava video. His intonation is so much more pronounced in that video.

  208. Entraya Crosshill

    It just needs more bacon
    Putting a potato in the oven for an hour and then just slopping in some bacon, cheddar and cream is the laziest and comfiest meal there is, doesnt have to be fancy or dignified

  209. Marksman24444

    Dude I love potatoes so much I’d probably bang one

    1. chris lowis

      Are you Irish?

    2. android16B

      Bangers and smash*

    3. stockton350

      Marksman24444 that would add new meaning to bangers and mash

  211. ykagz007

    I reckon I’m gonna be watching a whole load of your videos.
    I’m gonna make these lovely little puppies this week!

  223. TalulahCarmichael2

    Personally, I put a little sour cream and cheddar in mine.

  224. Sandra C

    I had a double baked potato at school and loved it. I decided I wanted to do it on Thanksgiving day. so thanks for the video

  234. Fernando Novosad

    Guys does anyone know why he uses cayene pepper in everything , he mentioned in a video that in his blog explains it but i couldnt find it 🙁 i never used cayene before so im curious

    1. Zane Mouchett

      I noticed your comment. It adds interesting color and heat to dishes. The cayenne he uses is normally ground smooth and doesn’t have occasional unpleasant explosions of pepper to dishes like cracked black pepper can.

  235. Myron Macklin

    I’d opt to microwave the potatoes for the first step in lieu of baking for an hour. Awesome recipe as usual.

  236. utoobguy30

    pro tip, use canned evaporated milk in this or mashed potatoes, youll thank me later.

  237. Citizen Brain

    This is one of my Mom’s special dishes she’ll make for holiday meals, except she puts thick slices of cheddar cheese on top. Makes a great side for Prime Rib!

  238. johnytest464

    Somewhere around the moment you were saying not to add the same ingredients as you do since it’s a technique video, not a recipe, I thought to myself “Hmmm, how about maybe adding something green, like some herbs, maybe green onions, and maybe some cheese, and something with a little spice, like chili powder or cayene…” What you do next? Add all of the abovementioned in xd

  239. xman870096

    This looks great, the only thing I would add is a little sour cream and some crumbled bacon bits…. Mmm I can almost taste it now!!

  240. Yailene ruiz

  262. Alex K

    It sounds like Jeff Garland has his own cooking show

  263. R WHP

    Putting the top into the bottom is brilliant – makes it look fancy, and doesn’t waste the top of the potato. Thank you, Chef!

  264. Kirali

    hahahahaha, I don’t know about how much money you make 😀 but you make quite a LOT of ‘likes’ … case you are not THAT TALL 😉 I love your humor, chef!! and the fact that you point out that you do NOT WANT others to FOLLOW you blindly …but to be creative instead and put themSELVES and their own taste into that meal they are making

  265. Barbara Rey-Constantin

    I must concur this looks like an uber tuber 🙂 Thanks.

  266. Kiss me softly

    I tried this today for lunch and it was a total success, my family loves it and so do I. Thank you!

  267. torii coleman

  273. Taylor

    some say tall and thin is in
    but chef john says
    short and fat is where its at

  274. Vakas Shah

    Ended up tasting exactly like a cheese and onion pasty. Nice to know, but not what id look for in a jacket potato.

  275. 57aflo

    Dud spud! Uber tuber! Love it!!!

  276. Jim Marcum

    I like to sprinkle some cheese over the top instead of the melted butter.  I also prefer Olive Oil to rub the potatoes in.  Use butter, cream cheese and milk as stuffing recipe.  gooooood.

  277. Taylor Hemmings


  278. Nasima B

    “Short and fat is better than long and skinny” i see what you did there. Chef.

    1. Old Yeller

      Julie Biddle
      Flipping through channels many years ago, I stopped when I saw a rather plump young woman in a
      kitchen setting, clearly about to make something.
      I stopped, and as I usually don’t watch cooking shows, my husband inquired “Why”.
      I said, “Look at her! Whatever she’s about to make, it’s gotta be good!”
      I was right. She was making BUTTERSCOTCH!!!!
      Oh my God! Butterscotch!!
      I didn’t know Butterscotch had REAL Scotch in it!!
      Her recipe did.

    2. hans

      And then he goes on to say tall people maker more money.

  285. Warrior n Him

    MAN! that looks good like the concept of putting the top half at the bottom of the potatoes. BUT THAT EGG OH NO for me. GREAT JOB THOUGH

  286. mareva siruno

    awesome love it

  287. PopsfromNc

    Hahaha nice video!

  288. megahappy2beme

    I would just add a little extra with cheese and piping the filling back in using a star tip with piping bag for more visual flair.

  289. Eubones

    That’s way sexier that a potato should ever be!

  290. Arlan Wilder

    hey thank you for the tips.

  291. Bok Joo Kim

    this looks so scrumptious!

  292. Josh Fiddick

    this guys is stupid, yea sure taller ppl make more money than shorter ppl sure dumbass

  293. Josh Goddard

    Just made this for the second time… forgot the damned cheese. Still awesome. You’re the best, Chef John.

  294. Lichlord Kazam

    potatoes from Ireland is the only potatoes i accept.

  295. Cyberwolf74

  296. Arnie Calang

    awesome video!!!!!! thanks!!!! I’m gonna make them!!!!! 👍

  302. Debbie's Back Porch

    When I heard that Julia Child had died, I was driving and had to pull over to cry. You are the first ray of sunshine in my culinary world since then. In a world where the quality of a chef seems to be measured by the brashness of their attitude and the heat of their sauces, you are a true artist.

    Love this. So much better than those prissy so called Duchess spuds. Gonna do this soon.

  304. Living Free Forever - Melody & Ric Schafer

    This is one of my favorites. I’m so glad I found this recipe. I haven’t seen a potato look this good in years 🙂 Thank you! Melody

  305. Victoria Chism

    I’m not tasting raw egg yolk!

  306. amazingkellithekittyisnotonfire

    these look so good!!

  307. LPdedicated

    Sauteed leeks, chopped chives, bacon bits, gouda and a splash of cream (+ salt & pepper). Oh man.

  308. Samir Ali

    funtactic and yummmmy

  309. ImVeryImportantAndVeryPretentious

    his voice though

  310. J. Ascension

    you could add sour cream and milk and butter and blend it, then pipe it in with a piping bag and a star tip to give a hand crafted look

  311. michael james

    I used red skin potatoes, no need to oil them, just clean and leave wet. Nuke for 5 minutes. Then bake for 10 to 15 minutes at 350. Saves a lot of time. Depending on size, you may need to bake longer. Same instructions as above. I used 2 Tbsp, “Tastefully Simple” Spinach & Herb dip mix and 2 Tbsp “Tastefully Simple”, Bacon Bacon. with 2 Tbsp each of mayo and sour cream. Don’t need the egg, it’s in the mayo. Bake on oil sprayed alum foil till toasted.   Thanks Chef for the addition of the tops becoming part of the bottom! Great Idea! Love your work!

  312. SweetNails Sherri C

    omg ur so funny i love ya, looks yummy tfs xo

  313. Niko Harju

    Chef John should really write a conspiracy theory book called: Tall people make more money than short people.

  314. Freddie Clark

    My mother made these when i was a young lad, she used corned beef and onion in the mix…..Loved them.

    1. OlObuffalo

      My Mum did it the same way as yours

    2. Ranjit

      My wife makes it with smashed potatos

    3. Freddie Clark

      I thought corned beef hash contained diced potato.

    4. Ranjit

      That’s called corned beef hash here.

    5. Louise Ricketts

      That sounds good. Must try it.

  315. sergienri

    Chef john have you ever made guava bbq?

  316. Richy Diago

    You are THE Bro-tatoe King!

  317. GeM Edits

    I’m short and I have 900k

  318. puppetmasterin

    This is a great recipe, but you have a strange humor according to your joke about tall people making more money than short…

    1. Mizz Khan

      +puppetmasterin yeh it was 😊

    2. puppetmasterin

      +Mizz Khan
      Me too, thats what tall people love to do, tease short people!!! But anyway, still nice recipe!

    3. Mizz Khan

      it was pathetic really especially as I’m petite

    4. Andrey Starovoytov

      +puppetmasterin Pure sarcasm

    5. Ralph Craig

      +puppetmasterin That is true…

  325. minasaywhaa

    totally doing this tonight for dinner!

  326. TeleTrans 1

    That looks great. Although I would do it without the oil or animal products. I bet it would be delicious with baked beans mixed into the filling. I would do this as a main dish rather than a side.

  327. Christian Carlo Acilo

    My food wish is John on the plate. LOL

  328. andrewt248

    You are the James Spader of your blacklisted tater.

    looks awesome…gonna try this weekend..

  330. cols sneepe

    good vid i subd

  331. Richard Coe

    After the first round of baking, mixing and fluffing, would you think this to be a good candidate for freezing and then re-heating?

  332. Ronda Goodlet

    A very nice recipe, but for me I was missing the cream cheese and the crispy Bacon! Just my preference to this recipe! Was looking for something different from my own.

  333. miyubail

    I live in the potato state of Idaho. I will definitely make this version of stuffed spuds.

  334. drummerchef851

    Scallion, bacon, horseradish and white cheddar! Yum. Try white pepper in potatoes, much better flavor.
    Great video.

  335. Ray Riemer

    I did these last new years and they were awesome!I think i will do some more right now!

  336. Rodolfo Nunhez


  337. Chester Puffington

    I will employ this technique for my next twice baked potatoes. It is amazing how a little effort can make all the difference in the final presentation.

  338. Brian Anderson

    Excellent presentation!

  339. MrBlee7

    Short and fat is always better than long and skinny. I love it!

  348. Stefany Herrera

    Is cayenne chef johns favorite ingredient? It’s like in every recipe even the cookies 😆

    1. Summer Noybn

      too late…

    2. Frank j

      cayenne cookies! Don’t give him any ideas

    3. Robert Decker

      the reason is that Chef John does what Chef John wants. and also, cayenne pepper sort of activates your taste buds a little more and allows you to taste things with a deeper sense than normal

    4. Payhole Everdouche

      +Stefany Herrera
      It’s great for Erectile Diss-FUNKtion.
      Don’t you Dare Dis Chef John,
      or else he’ll screw with your Junction,
      Box that is…!!!
      Speaking of Junction Boxes, Chef John’s profuse usage of cayenne makes his dishes ‘Electric.’

    5. Mich G

      +Stefany Herrera It’s good for digestion too!

  349. Elham Sindi

    Thanks fore making life so easy , you are such a great teacher 👍🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

  350. Gabriel Thompson

    I’ve been lookin for some new ideas for Turkey Day. I watched your decadent euro butter potatos….yum. Now I’ve decided to add smoked cheddar…and to experiment, I’m adding some drained sun-dried toms, and possibly arty bottoms.

  351. Candace love

    I love you Chef John, you’re hilarious

  352. Adam MacLeod

    Chef John, the only issues with your videos is that I only have approximately 52 hours of them to view. Can you please like, just chain yourself to the kitchen, and film 24/7? You give me so many inspirations as a home chef and every technique and recipe of yours I try is just magnificent. I feel as though you should be the President of the CIA. Seriously, your teaching skills are beyond reproach. It’s like your life gave good luck the old tappa tappa! Enjoy! 🙂

    1. sawadee2000

      He’d certainly make a better CIA president than Ferdinand Metz , who held that job back when I was a student there back in the 1990’s. I never warmed to that pompous sob.

  353. Kathleen Adorio

    I’m trying these right now but it seems like my baked potatoes are very far from yours. I’m terrible at cooking, I know.

  354. Tobi Floof

    Mascarpone potatoes work soooo well here
