Twice Baked Potato Casserole
30 minPrep Time 30 minCook Time
1 hrTotal Time
5 pounds russet potatoes 10 slices bacon 1 (8 ounce) pkg. cream cheese 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted 1 cup sour cream 1/4 cup green onions, minced 2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese 2 teaspoons salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Peel potatoes, and cut into 1-inch pieces. Place in a large pot, and add enough cold water to cover by about 2 inches. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and reduce to a simmer. Cook until tender and easily pierced with a paring knife, about 20 minutes. Transfer to a colander to drain; return to pan, cover, and set aside. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add bacon, and cook until crisp and browned, turning once. Transfer to paper towels to drain; let cool, and crumble into pieces. Using a hand mixer, mash the potatoes in pan until light and fluffy. Add the cream cheese, butter, and sour cream, and beat until combined and smooth. Add the chives, 2 cups cheddar cheese, half the bacon, salt, and pepper. Stir until well combined. Transfer to a 9x13-inch baking pan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Top with remaining 1/2 cup cheddar cheese. Bake until top is slightly golden and potatoes are heated through, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven; garnish with remaining bacon. Serve immediately.
