This Cheesy Twice Baked Potato Casserole is rich and creamy and truly the perfect dish for special occasions, potlucks and cheat days.
Guilty pleasures. We all have them, we all try to avoid them, we all ultimately fail at leaving them alone. In my case I have two vices, carbs and cheese. Well… there’s more than just two but in the interest of keeping this post to under 500 words, we will just work with those two specifically.
That being said, this recipe is one of my favorites and it will soon be one of yours, too.
This potato casserole is that go-to dish that is perfect for special occasions, potlucks and cheat days. It’s rich and cheesy and creamy with pieces of crisp bacon and spicy green onions to really balance out and make it the perfect potato casserole dish. Like it a bit chunkier? No problem. Want to throw in some broccoli or chili? Whatever twirls your skirt up! Like to leave the skins on your potatoes? Add some into your mixing bowl. Seriously, you can add in whatever sides you normally like on your little plain Jane baked potatoes… remember, that’s the fun part of cooking.
I have been making individual twice baked potatoes for a long time now and I wasn’t sure if mixing it all into a casserole dish was going to translate as well as what I had grown used to.. you know… the little baked boats of cheese, toppings and overflowing yumminess that you always say ‘Gosh, I probably won’t even be able to eat one half of one’ … and then you lose your mind and eat the WHOLE potato!
I find there is a lot less judgement involved with a casserole.
So go ahead, break out those yoga pants and find your favorite marathon playing on TV… this is one guilty pleasure you won’t regret.
