Have you noticed that I have already switched gears from Halloween crafts and recipes to Thanksgiving??
Yeah, well, with baby coming soon I wanted to make sure I shared with you some great recipes and creations before we have 2 weeks of guest posts that are scheduled for Melody’s arrival. I hope you guys don’t mind. I know you guys will love the guest posts because there are some great recipes and gift ideas lined up, and I think you’ll love them!!
Today’s recipe is one I tried last month knowing it would be great for fall and especially for Thanksgiving. It’s a Twice Baked Potato Casserole that was AMAZING!! If you have ever had Twice Baked Potatoes before then you’d know they are pretty darn delicious. This is just a casserole version but my husband says it’s even better than the potatoes on their own. I agree it was great but still can’t decide which is better. I think they are both really easy to make, but loved the simplicity of throwing it all in a dish as opposed into each potato skin. I also have a thing for red potatoes so I definitely enjoyed this recipe a TON!!
I think this dish would be good all year long as a great side dish but would also be FANTASTIC for Thanksgiving. Not sure about you guys but we usually have so much company that there are a few potato recipes (mashed, au gratin, and more). If you’re up for trying a new recipe I’d highly recommend this casserole. because you can’t go wrong with potatoes, bacon, cheese and sour cream! 😉
Here’s the Twice Baked Potato Casserole recipe:
- 6 medium red potatoes
- ½ tsp. salt
- ½ tsp. pepper
- 6-7 pieces bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 3 cups sour cream
- 2 cups shredded mozz cheese
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- Pierce potatoes and bake at 400 for 40-45 minutes.
- Let potatoes cool 10-15 minutes and cut into 1 inch cubes.
- While potatoes are cooling mix sour cream, salt, pepper, bacon, and cheeses in a bowl. Set aside.
- pray 9x13 pan and layer with half the potatoes and then half the sour cream mixture. Layer rest of potatoes on top and then top with sour cream mixture.
- Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
