TWICE BAKED POTATO CASSEROLE INGREDIENTS

twice baked potato casserole raw ingredients that are labeled

You will need:

  • 4 large russet potatoes
  • 1 small white onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh dill
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup real bacon, crumbled 
  • 1 ½ cups sour cream, full fat

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

Russet Potatoes: You can substitute the Russet potatoes for any starchy variety to still get the same effect. Another popular potato variety for this kind of recipe is Yukon Gold. Avoid red or new potatoes as they don’t mash as well.

Cheddar Cheese: If you don’t have cheddar cheese handy, you can use other cheeses that cook well such as Mozzarella or Monterey Jack. They might not have quite as much flavor as the cheddar but they will work just as well in the recipe.

HOW TO MAKE THIS TWICE BAKED POTATO CASSEROLE RECIPE

STEP ONE: Wash and dry all potatoes. Use a fork to poke holes on all sides of potatoes. 

STEP TWO: Place two potatoes on a microwave-safe plate and heat on high for 3 minutes. Flip potatoes over and cook for another 3 minutes or until tender. Repeat these steps with the other 2 potatoes. Let potatoes cool before moving onto the next step. 

PRO TIP: If you prefer to cook these in the oven, then you can. Cook them for around 40 minutes. For a make-ahead meal, you can prepare the potatoes, cook them, cool them, and keep them in the fridge for 2 to 3 days until you make the casserole.

STEP THREE: Preheat the oven to 425F. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

STEP FOUR: Cut each cooled potato into 4’s.

STEP FIVE: Using the larger holed side of a grater, shred potatoes. Hold the potato in your hand with the potato skin against your hand. The potato skin should just slide off as you shred potatoes. You don’t want the skin in this recipe so just toss these out.

STEP SIX: Scoop the potato mixture into the baking dish. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until the top of the casserole is lightly browned. Serve hot. 

STEP SEVEN: In a large bowl, mix together all other ingredients with the shredded potatoes. Stir well.

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: Once the casserole has cooled, you can store the leftovers in an airtight container for 3 to 4 days. Pop them back in the oven to reheat and serve.

IN THE FREEZER: Once the potatoes have cooled, you can freeze them. Pop them in portions in a freezer bag or you can freeze them on a plate covered with a freezer bag. Store them for up to three months and defrost thoroughly before reheating. If the potatoes seem a little watery when reheating, add a little butter or sour cream.
