These twice baked cheesy stuffed potatoes with smoked gouda, pancetta and sage are ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! You can get all the legwork done days ahead of time so that when it’s the final countdown, you can spend your time lounging around the cheese plate with a glass of wine in hand instead of sweating over the stove in a crowded kitchen.
