The Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make the Twice Baked Potato Casserole (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the printable recipe card):

  • Butter
  • Cream cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Milk or half-and-half
  • Garlic powder
  • Fresh parsley
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Green onions
  • Bacon – The bacon will need to be fully cooked, so you could cook extra bacon at breakfast and save it in the refrigerator for making this recipe.

How to Make Twice Baked Potato Casserole

Preheat your oven to 375°F. While the oven is heating, peel the potatoes and cut them into 2-inch chunks. Place them in a large pot of water and bring to a boil. Boil the potatoes until fork-tender.

Tip: If you like the potato skins, only partially peel the potatoes.

Once the potatoes are tender, drain the water and place the potatoes into a large mixing bowl. Add the milk/cream, butter, cream cheese, and sour cream; mash with a potato masher.

Tip: Mash the potatoes just until they reach your desired consistency. Some people like them more chunky and others like them more smooth.
