Twice Baked Potato Casserole

Twice Baked Potato Casserole - a delicious side dish with potatoes, cheese, sour cream, bacon and more. YUMMY!!

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! 😉

    I made this tonight and I think 3 cups of sour cream was too much don’t get me wrong it wasn’t bad but the sour cream was overwhelming, I would just use less next time! Thanks for sharing!

    What a great and easy potato dish. I will definitely be making this again.

    Gail Plaskiewicz :

    Is there a sub for sour cream and it can’t be yogurt either. I don’t like either and I am a super taster so I would taste it. Otherwise, I would love to make this. Could I just leave it out altogether?

      I think it would definitely turn out different. The sour cream makes it creamy. You can try substituting 3/4 c buttermilk with 1/4 c butter. If that doesn’t work, you can always google & find a substitute that you like. Hope that helps!!
