  • Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and return potatoes to pot.

  • Meanwhile, arrange bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon on paper towels and crumble.

  • Combine 1 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, evaporated milk, sour cream, salt, and black pepper in the pot with potatoes. Mash with a potato masher until creamy. Spread potato mixture into prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes; sprinkle with bacon, green onions, and remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese. Return to oven and continue baking until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes more.

I made a few changes, added butter (as recommended from the other reviews) and used 2% milk as I did not have any evaporated milk. Used extra bacon (cause all the kids like bacon) and everyone loved it. All had to have second helpings. Read More

I cut the recipe in half and used 2 medium sized Russet potatoes (in my mind baked potatoes are Russets). I left the skin on and followed the recipe. The ingredients list says that the green onion quantity will be divided but the instructions only say to sprinkle them on top. I mixed some into the potatoes and left some for the top. I can't say I was overwhelmed with this recipe. I think it really needed some butter. I had to sprinkle quite a bit of salt on my portion to make it edible. Read More

This was a total hit! I made a few changes because I didn't want to go to the store... I used 10 regular russet potatoes, cubed them up with the skin on & mixed with some of the sauce before pouring them into a greased dish. Then I poured the remaining sauce on top & covered the dish with aluminum foil...I baked them at 350° for 45 minutes then removed the foil, topped with some more shredded chedder, chopped green onions & crispy crumbled bacon. Popped them back in the oven for an additional 15 minutes to brown the top & there was not one bite left! Excellent side dish for our tri tip steak & pork loin (I cook for 15+ on Sunday's) This will be in our dinner rotation forever! Read More

There is a BBQ joint near my house that takes a baked potato and puts all the classic loaded stuff on top of it. THEN they top that with shredded smoked pork, BBQ sauce and french-fried onions. SO...I made this casserole. Then before putting on the last layer of cheese, I topped it with homemade pulled pork, shoestring onions, BBG sauce and then cheese and baked an additional 15 minutes. OMG folks went gaga at my club event! Read More

I liked this recipe as a BASE FOR MY OWN CHANGES AND ADDITIONS. Halved the recipe added butter and slightly more than one quarter cup of sour cream to 4 baked potatoes which I did in the microwave to save time. Certainly a good recipe to make your own Thanks! Read More
