I developed this recipe completely by accident. I was making my usual stuffed potatoes and was in a hurry. So instead of mashing the potatoes, I just tossed everything together. My family and friends actually liked them better.
I like these potatoes because they're so versatile. They can be served alongside a fancy entree when company comes...or they can stand as the main course with a salad for an easy supper. Either way, they're wonderful. My family loves them.—Debbie Jones, California, Maryland
My daughter gave me this recipe because she knows I love potatoes. The hearty casserole is loaded with a palate-pleasing combination of bacon, cheeses, green onions and sour cream. —Betty Miars, Anna, Ohio
One of the things I like about twice-baked potatoes is that they are very versatile. They can be served as a complement to an entree, or they can be the main course with a salad. Either way, they are tasty.
Meet the Cook: Back when I was teaching elementary school (I'm now a busy stay-at-home mom to our two youngsters, 7 and 2), my class would put together a Mother's Day cookbook. Many of the dishes are still my favorites - this one included.

The delicious side dish from Karol Chandler-Ezell of Nacogdoches, Texas is flavored with bacon and cheddar, and has just a hint of Dijon mustard. And since they take under 30 minutes, they're perfect for a quick weeknight dinner.
These hearty potatoes are fully loaded. They can be changed up a zillion different ways, but this is my favorite, featuring three kinds of cheese plus cream cheese and cottage cheese. —Kathleen Gill, Pahrump, Nevada
I've used these rich potatoes as both an appetizer and side dish. Guests seem to enjoy the distinctive taste of Monterey Jack cheese and basil. These satisfying mouthfuls are perfect for a late-afternoon or evening get-together when something a little heartier is needed.
