Twice-Baked Potato Casserole

Sometimes I really appreciate the fact that I tend to be lazy. Honestly, I work hard in the kitchen only so that I can take a few days off! And beyond that, my laziness tends to feed my creativity. Which is what happened today. I really wanted to serve twice-baked potatoes with our meatloaf cup dinner. However, I could not find my motivation for getting involved in that whole process. Hence…Twice-Baked Potato Casserole

  • 2 lbs. potatoes, unpeeled and cubed
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 c. sour cream or 1/2 c. sour cream and 1/2 c. Ranch dressing
  • 4-5 slices chopped bacon, cooked
  • 2 c. cheese
  • 2 t. salt
  • 1 t. black pepper
  • 1 t. garlic powder

!. Boil potatoes until fork-tender. Drain and return to pot. Slightly mash potatoes before adding any other ingredients.
2. Add cream cheese, sour cream (or sour cream and ranch), bacon, 1 c. cheese and the seasonings to the potatoes. Stir until well combined.
3. Transfer the potato mixture to a small casserole dish. Cover with remaining cheese. Refrigerate or bake immediately at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.*If I had had some green onions on hand, I definitely would have added those too!

Getting the taste I was craving with minimal effort is certainly a finer thing! Stop by my friend Amy’s blog to join in Finer Things Friday.

    .) Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
