This sounds terrific but for the better taste of baked potato I would bake the potatoes first unless you were needing to use up leftover potatoes.
This was great! I'm a huge fan of twice baked potatoes anyway, the whole bacon/onion/cheese/sour cream really works for me, so making a casserole version really appealed! I am a true believer that bacon makes everything better and it was true of these potatoes too. There is something so comforting about a big plate of mash, especially when it's not just plain mash!
Made exactly as written but we didn't really care for this. I think it may have been the addition of the eggs and the bacon seemed to be overpowering.
Wow! We made this as a side for our Christmas 2008 dinner. I only substituted chives for scallions, and doubled the recipe, adding a bit more milk (I used Hood Fat Free Smart Milk) and light sour cream, based on other reviewer comments. The eggs really made this recipe special, I think, adding a subtle richness, and a puffiness to the casserole that was very festive on our Christmas table. The taste was out of this world - rich and satisfying, without being overwhelming or too fussy. Everyone loved it, and has requested that it make an appearance for other get-togethers. Thanks for another wonderful recipe, Evelyn!
I make this casserole often using left over mashed potatoes. Instead of using bacon, I use diced ham. This is a great way to use up lefteovers. I never add egg to mine, It really does add much to the taste.
What a simple and delicious alternative to basic, boring old baked potatoes! And the kids loved it. Simple to make and tasty. Didn't have bacon so did without it and added some fresh chives. YUM!!
very easy to make and the kids love it
Oh Eve...what an awesome and easy recipe. We smoke pork tenderloins today and DH wanted twice-baked potatoes. I didn't have large enough potatoes, but after lots of peeling, got rid of the little spuds to make this dish. Once again, Zaar to the rescue. We loved this. Thanks for posting another awesome recipe!
This was tasty! Trying to get all the dishes done at the same time I accidentally let this over cook so it was a bit dry. I will definately be making it again! Loved by all
We all loved this. I only baked for 30 minutes because I didn't want it to be crumbly, and it was perfect. I probably kicked up the bacon and cheese, and I did leave out the green onion since my guys don't like them. Thank you, evelyn/athens.
