It’s all the yumminess of twice baked potatoes, but in casserole form. It’s incredibly easy to make and is absolutely delicious.
We love twice baked potatoes! In fact, if I made them weekly, my boys would think I was the coolest mom ever.
I love twice baked potatoes every bit as much as my boys do, but sometimes I’m just not in the mood for the whole scooping, mashing, filling routine.
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.
So I just baked my potatoes, let them cool and then cut them in to chunks!It worked perfectly and chunks of potatoes smothered in sour cream, cheese and bacon is a beautiful thing.
If you’re looking for a new side dish for your Easter dinner, then you’ve come to the right place. This is really the perfect side for any meal.
A few tips. . .
- Keep in mind that in addition to the finished casserole needing 25-30 minutes to bake, you need to bake your potatoes before hand so make sure you plan accordingly.
- If you want to save a little time and/or for convenience sake, you can use the precooked bacon (I like the Costco brand) and sprinkle on top. If you do this, whatever amount you choose to use (I’d use about 3/4 to 1 cup), spread it evenly on a large plate and cook it in the microwave for about 70 to 90 seconds before you sprinkle it on top of the casserole. This will crisp it up beautifully!
