Pure comfort food.  That’s what this Twice Baked Potato Casserole is all about.  Last week my husband had a potluck at work.  He texted me saying that he needed me to make potato salad. Potato salad??  It just sounded so boring.  I had made a baked potato salad for his coworkers before and it had gone over quite well and so I thought I’d make that again.

But then I was feeling guilty about sending the same dish twice, even though it’s been over a year, and I started thinking about twice baked potatoes, and how I could turn that into a salad and this casserole was born.

Now, you can forgo the second round of baking and serve this potato salad cold or warm instead of hot.  Totally up to you.  I think the melty cheese is what pushes me over the edge when I’m craving twice baked potatoes so I opted for that.

I started by baking up some russet potatoes.  You can use whatever variety you like best.  After a quick rub down of olive oil and kosher salt, they get baked up nice and crisp in the oven.  I bake my potatoes on a sheet pan to keep my oven from getting all messy.  You can wrap them in foil but then you won’t get the super crispy skins which is what I was going for.

After the potatoes are baked up nice and tender, let them cool until you can handle them with ease. I left my skins on because the crispy potato skins are part of the twice baked potato experience.  If that freaks you out, just peel the skin off.  It comes off super easily after the potatoes are baked.

Now it’s time to mix them with all of you favorite twice baked potato fixins.  I used sour cream, sharp cheddar cheese, bacon, and green onions as well as a bit of mayo to help this casserole hold together and to make it extra creamy.  It’s a must.

I topped it with some extra cheese and bacon and stuck it back in the oven to get “twice baked”.  A final sprinkle of green onions to complete the twice baked look and this casserole is ready to go.  The best part of this casserole is the crispy potato skin – sooo good!

  7. Twice-baked potatoes are one of my family’s favorite dinners, but they are SUCH a pain to make—this casserole will be my lifesaver on busy weeknights! I might not share it though. ;)

  8. I love twice-baked potatoes and this casserole is such a great idea! It looks incredible with all that melty cheese and bacon! I can imagine what a hit it was at the potluck! Pinning :)

  9. Lucky for us all that you felt guilty! I love potatoes. Mom never really cooked with rice. So I really do associate potatoes with family and comfort. I had to pin this. I make scalloped potatoes too often for family gatherings. This is a nice change of pace.

  10. I love Potato Casserole. There is a restaurant in my hometown that has the best, but I no longer live there. I’ll definitely have to try this out! Pinned!

  11. Oh, I love this! I think it’ll be perfect for our church potluck this week! It looks even better (if that’s possible) than twice baked potatoes!

  12. I love this casserole it looks so tasty! We will definitely be giving this a try very soon.

  13. Hi Trish! This looks so yummy :D Is there any way I could incorporate eggs to make it a twice-baked breakfast casserole? How would I do that?

    Thanks,
    Shannon

  14. Sound fab and looks delish … but can I sub the mayo for something else?

  15. I usually pass up on the potato casseroles because of the calories. However, your recipe looks sooooooo good that I had to get the recipe. Thanks for sharing and I can’t wait to try them!

  16. Love this, it looks so good. I need to take something for pot luck lunch but have no over to reheat this. Do you think it would work in a crock pot?

  17. I stumbled across this recipe a couple weeks ago and have already made it 3 times! I’m absolutely in love with this dish!!

  18. Carol Abbott says:

    Have you ever made this ahead of time and cooked it the next day?

  19. I am also curious about preparing the day before…I will be trying it this evening (the prep work) & finish it for Sunday dinner tomorrow. Stay tuned!

  20. Yes! Prepared the night before, placed in fridge then baked after church, it was fantastic! It took about an additional 20 minutes cooking time. Wow, it will definitely be a repeat!

  21. It’s very simple to find oout any topic on net as compared
    too books, as I found this paragraph at this site.

  23. i just want to know for the twice baked potato casserole if you can skip the sour cream and use something else for it ?
