Twice-Baked Potatoes With Leeks

“I love the combination of leeks and potatoes, and I love twice-baked potatoes, so this recipe is ideal for me. This is a great presentation, with leeks in the potatoes and garnished with frizzled leeks as well. To make ahead, you can fill the potato skins and chill; then bake for 30 minutes.”
