Easy Loaded Baked Potato Casserole
Great and easy potato casserole packed with bacon, Cheddar, and green onions.
Great and easy potato casserole packed with bacon, Cheddar, and green onions.
I overhauled it with butter and half and half, took out the evaporated milk. I give it points for giving me the idea! Mine turned out AWESOME!
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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
5 Star recipe! I have to admit I modified it. I substituted half and half for the evaporated milk. Also added cream cheese and butter. Healthy no delicious yes.. nice part is you can add or subtract what you want and how much of each ingredient you want.
I will make this again. It was delicious and a hit with the family! I used milk instead of evaporated milk. I also added a stick of butter and used about 2 times the bacon.
My favorite to take to parties! The only thing I substitute is the evaporated milk. I use cheddar cheese soup instead. Layer everything in a crock pot. Turn on high for 4 hours, stirring once every hour. Voila!
I made this dish, like some of the other reviews, I too used 2% milk, instead of evaporated milk, I also used butter, which really helped, of course salt and pepper, overall really great recipe and very simple to make, everyone loved it! I will be making it again
Didn't make any changes but doubled the recipe cause I made it at my job..I'm a cook..sold out in 20 minutes
This was a winner with the kiddos! I followed fellow reviewer's advice and left the skin on my yukons, used whole milk instead of evaporated because that's what avoided a trip to the market, added butter and a smidge of garlic and topped with full pack of bacon because who doesn't love bacon?...rest of recipe remained the same. Perfection! Will make again and again.
I love these potatoes, the only thing I changed is I baked the potatoes ( in the microwave ) I didn't mash the potatoes (I cut them in chunks) I added about 2 tbl. of garlic powder
Added more bacon , used evaporated milk and my family loved it!
Good recipe and concept. I halved the recipe because I didn't need so much, and added a half a stick of butter and it turned out really great and fed my family of four perfectly. I cut the baking time a little and it was still great!
I made the recommended changes as well (2% milk and butter), I also mixed some of the bacon and green onion into the potatoes. And for a little extra zip, I added some grated Swiss cheese. Definitely a make again dish.
No it was good
I got one of those baked potatoe blankets for Christmas ---YES---worked good for this recipe--then I followed the recipe ---yum yum---used large baking potatoes ---you done good --thanks
I used a cupcake pan and they came out amazing also used butter and milk and topped with crunchy onions awesome ty
French onion dip instead of sour cream
My whole family loved this. Just made it to go with steak for Valentine's dinner. I thought the evaporated milk gave it a lovely consistency. I used 4 Idaho potatoes and no green onions. I didn't have Yukons or green onions. I think this is a great dish for a potluck or as part of a meal to take to a friend.
I love this recipe! I changed the 10 Yukon potatoes to 6 Russet potatoes. We also used skim milk instead of evaporated milk and about 3 tablespoons of butter when mashing!
I changed the bacon with goose breast slices. And yes will do it again.
This recipe was delicious! All of the flavors were excellent and a great balance of taste. My husband and 3-year-old went back for seconds! I did alter the recipe a little. I did not have evaporated milk, so I used regular whole milk. Also, I did real bacon bits from the jar (to spare my time cooking real bacon) and that turned out great too! So, if you need to make in a hurry, I do admit the "real" bacon bits in a jar work just as fine. I will definitely be making this recipe again and again!
Since it's just my husband and myself, I basically cut the recipe in half. Like the others, I also added some butter; I eyeballed the cheese, using sharp cheddar. Actually, I supervised while my husband made this dish. I was recovering from hip replacement surgery, and I knew making a dish like this would make him feel really good about his abilities. He felt so good about himself, I should have made a whole recipe. I barely finished mine, looked around and it was all gone! Thanks for sharing such a tasty and easy dish.
I eyeballed the ingredients and added butter. Made it for a family party and everyone loved it. Will make it again!
Oh My Goodness!! This is a Jewel of a dish!!
This was pretty easy and absolutely delicious. I made a few changes based on what I had available, but it’d take a lot mess up this recipe! We added extra bacon, some seasoning, milk instead of cream, and didn’t mash, but cubed the potatoes. Next time I’ll probably mash a couple to mix in that some of that yummy sauce a little better, then pour the rest over the top, then top with the bacon, cheese and some chives. There’s so much you could add to this recipe to make it your own, but it’s awesome for sure! My family knocked it out!
Definitely a keeper recipe! I did make a change: reduced the amount of potatoes by half, but left all other ingredient volumes the same, and substituted half and half for the evaporated milk. Great tasting, nice texture and very aesthetically pleasing because of the colors. Will certainly make again.
Excellent side with ANY entree!
This is a GREAT recipe. Thanks for sharing! I tend to make casseroles the day before Thanksgiving so they have a chance to sit and let the flavors meld, but this recipe causes me problems because I can’t keep people from “sampling” it early. Lesson learned: Next year either make an extra batch, or set out a decoy!
Great recipe! I used 4 oz cream cheese in the potato mixture. My granddaughter has a "thing" about melted cheese. She likes cheese, just not melted. I sprinkled cheese on most of the casserole (I left her a cheese-less corner) I used a sprinkle of chives instead of green onions. It's what I had on hand. Very versatile and delicious recipe! Will make again!
I made it exactly as the recipe said. Yes, I would make it again.
This was a really nice change from the same old mashed potatoes. My family loved it!!'
Nice presentation...basically loaded mashed potatoes.
Subbed the evaporated milk for half and half and added butter and my kids loveddddd it!!! Huge hit!
I had a large amount of leftover mashed potatoes to do something with and found this recipe and decided to try and use it . I added a little milk and lots of bacon bits, cheese, some chopped onions, sour cream and seasonings. I froze most of it and just baked a small amount for our dinner. I took the rest to our family get together and baked it there. It was a great hit at our thanksgiving dinner, Did not have to worry about it being left over. It disappeared quickly.
I made it according to the original recipe and it was delicious ! The only thing I would do different is cut the recipe in half for family of four !
My whole household loved it!! Can't wait to make it again.
I enjoyed this dish. Made it for our Christmas dinner. Lot's of flavor. I probably made it more 'mushy' than I will next time.
Like a lot... not sure I loved
Delicious and creamy! Added extra salt. Everyone loved it!
Added some onions. It was a big hit at Thanksgivings.
Absolutely loved this! Was a hit at a dinner party.
so good. definitely add butter though. I added half a stick. I also only needed a half cup of milk. i used whole milk though. added extra bacon and cheese on top. for those who said it had no flavor, did you season it? some garlic salt and pepper gave it the extra bit of flavor the potatoes needed. will make again and again! my husband went for thirds it was so good.
This was a hit at our Christmas dinner! Everyone loved it, and there were no leftovers. I used 12 potatoes, a cup of sour cream, a pound of bacon, I also added 1 1/4 cube of butter regular milk instead of canned milk, and extra cheese. Will definitely make this again!
I loved it. added yellow onion to the mixture and withheld bacon. Awesome.
This recipe was extremely easy! I substituted turkey bacon because my husband does not eat pork. This was a big with my family!
So easy and the family has already asked for it again. I used unpeeled potatoes for a little extra vitamins.
My family loves it.
An easy & fairly quick meal. My kids loved it when they were younger & living at home.
I used whole milk instead of evaporated. I also added butter, seasoned salt, and Mrs. Dash (original). It turned out amazing!
Made this for my whole family including my mother and brother and THEY LOVED IT!!! Def making this a family favorite!!!
Easy and delicious. I used precooked bacon to save time and dishes to clean.
No green onion and added some pork chops cut into cubes.
My husband loves this...it is not hard to make at all...delicious
It was easy and delicious! No leftovers. It needed just a tad more salt and pepper but other than than, yummy!
Great idea! It was delicious, and I followed almost exactly except used 8 russets and regular milk.
The only change was I used butter and 2% milk. (It's what I had) Delicious!
so good! I made it with veggie bacon & my son doesnt like mashed spuds so i kept it chunky & it was awesome. my family loved it
This was easy and very tasty. I did use more cheese but otherwise followed the recipe. I cooked and mashed the potatoes and assembled the casserole ahead of time and put into fridge for a couple of hours until wanted to bake it.
Simply feel good food here. I and the fam absolutely loved this casserole. I made as a trial run prior to the Thanksgiving Feast on beast day. I will be presenting this dish be as delish. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
Great recipe! I had potatoes I needed to use up as well as the majority of the ingredients, so it was practical and easy to make. I did not have scallions/green onions, but I did add a layer of Steamfresh broccoli in the last 5 minutes of bake time. I might try some breadcrumbs or black olives next time around.
