Sure! I have done this. It works great, and some have said that they are even better done this way. Enjoy the dinner guests tomorrow night. Sounds like fun!

thanks, my potatoes are in the oven as we speak. i am going to put together the carrots, onions,and celery in the crockpot for the main dish. two pork loins on top, two cans apple pie filling on top of meat. will start on high about noon or so for serving at seven. will turn to low once things heat up a bit. made the lemon poppy seed cake and also the corn bread. will mix up dips later. frost the cake. and i have all the big stuff out of the way. i love not being frazzled from cooking on the day of an event. actually i am thinking one for starting the meat.

Sounds like a wonderful company menu Babe!! Is it a special occasion, or "just because"?

I always do my twice baked potatoes the day before.

actually after they are baked from raw state, scoop out the potato part. save the skins. prepare potato flesh with sour cream, butter and a bit of milk. and grated cheese. mix well, scoop into the peels. before service, heat in oven , when almost hot, sprinkle with cheese and bacon bits. hope i didn't forget to tell you something. before the bacon i sprinkle on a bit of paprika for a little color. :chef:
