Twice Baked Potato Casserole

potato done

This recipe is a bit time consuming and pretty unhealthy, but SOOOO worth it!  If you want to cut back on time, you could always use the Ore Ida frozen potatoes and pre-cooked bacon.  I suppose you could make it healthier by using reduced- fat cheese, reduced-fat sour cream, and turkey bacon.  Or you could use the full-fat ingredients like I did and only make it on special occasions!

potato ingredients

These are your ingredients.  You obviously need potatoes, which I did not include in this picture, because I peeled and chopped them up the night before.

boil potatoes

Boil chopped potatoes until tender.

drain potatoes

Drain potatoes.  (Sorry the steam made the photo blurry.)

mash potatoes

Mash potatoes once drained. I like to leave mine a little chunky.  (Again, sorry about the blurry photo.)

layer potatoes

In greased dish, layer half of the mashed potatoes and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

put bacon salt and peepr

Sprinkle half of the cooked bacon on top of potato layer.

layer  potatoe

Top with sour cream.

add sour cream and cheese

Sprinkle half of the mozzarella cheese and half of the cheddar cheese on top of sour cream layer.  Repeat layers again, ending with cheese on top. Bake in oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit  for 25 minutes.

remove from oven and put onions

Remove from oven and sprinkle with green onions.
