This is my family’s idea of dream food. Warm cheesy potatoes mixed with all of your favorite loaded baked potato toppings.

Not exactly health food but definitely delicious comfort food. There are so many great flavors in every single bite from cheese to bacon to green onions.

How To Make The Twice Baked Potato Casserole

Start by baking two pounds worth of Russet or baking potatoes (this was 5 potatoes for me), scoop out the flesh, discard the skins, and mix the flesh with all kinds of goodness. Butter, sour cream, milk, cheese, bacon and green onions.

Transfer the potato mixture to a baking or casserole dish, sprinkle with more cheese, and bake until the cheese layer on top is as melted and browned as desired.

We love it when cheese gets a little browned around the edges but if you don’t, pull it out as soon as you’re ready.

Make It Ahead Of Time

While I haven’t personally tried it, I am 99% percent sure that you could bake the potatoes the first time, scoop out the flesh, mix with all the add-ins, and get it assembled in a casserole dish and ready for the second baking and refrigerate it.

When when you’re ready, just bake it off and serve. Mmm, carby, decadent, deliciousness right there.

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds baking potatoes (such as Russet), scrubbed and pierced
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed
  • 2/3 cup sour cream (I used lite)
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used whole)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 3 cups shredded cheese (I used a cheddar blend)
  • 10 to 12 strips bacon, cooked and diced small, with 2 tablespoons reserved
  • 1/3 cup green onions, with 2 tablespoons reserved

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425F (if you have convection, this is a great time to use it), pierce each potato 4 or 5 times with a fork or knife so they don’t explode, place them directly on the oven grates, and bake for about 45 to 60 minutes, or until potatoes are done and tender. Optionally rotate or flip halfway through the baking period. After potatoes are done, reduce oven temp to 350F.
  2. To a large bowl, add the butter; set aside.
  3. Allow the potatoes to cool for about 10 to 15 minutes, and when they’re cool enough to handle, slice each one in half horizontally. Scoop out the flesh into the large bowl with the butter, discard the skins, and mash with a fork or potato masher and incorporate the butter into the potatoes.
  4. Add the sour cream, milk, salt, pepper, and stir to combine.
  5. Add about 2 to 2 1/2 cups cheese, add the bacon and green onions (reserve 2 tablespoons of each), and stir to combine. Tip – Use one 2-ounce package of precooked bacon and simply microwave it for about 1 minute to heat it through.
  6. Spray a 3-quart casserole or baking dish with cooking spray, turn the potato mixture out into dish, and smooth the top with a spatula.
  7. Evenly sprinkle the remaining 1/2 to 1 cup cheese, evenly sprinkle the reserved bacon, and bake for about 20 to 30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and is as golden browned as desired.
  8. Evenly sprinkle with the reserved green onions and serve immediately. Recipe is best warm and fresh but will keep airtight in the fridge for up to 1 week.
