We love twice baked potatoes! In fact, if I made them weekly, my boys would think I was the coolest mom ever.
So I made a casserole version and may I just say it was a fabulous idea.
My boys finished dinner and while they were doing the dishes they kept sticking their forks in the pan eating more potatoes. My husband was doing the same thing. Every time I looked over one of them was snitching a few more potatoes. Josh wasn’t home when we ate, and he was just lucky there was even any left.
Everyone inhaled these potatoes.
I can’t really blame any of us.
Potatoes smothered in sour cream, cheese, bacon, melted butter. . . holy moly what’s not to love?
I’ve seen a lot of recipes for twice baked potato casseroles where you still have to do the whole scooping, mashing rigamarole, which is what I was trying to avoid.
