My husband is a meat and potatoes guy, so I try new combinations for variety. In this dish, twice-baked potatoes and potato skins make a scrumptious casserole. —Cyndy Gerken, Naples, FL

  • 4 large baking potatoes (about 3-1/4 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Scrub potatoes; pierce several times with a fork. Brush with oil; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Place in a foil-lined 15x10x1-in. baking pan; bake 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until tender. Cool slightly.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in whipping cream and 1/4 cup sour cream. Add 1-1/2 cups cheese; stir until melted. Remove from heat; cover to keep warm.
  3. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut each potato lengthwise in half. Scoop out pulp and place in a large bowl. Cut two potato skin shells into 1-in. pieces; save remaining skins for another use.
  4. Mash pulp with the remaining salt and pepper. Stir in cheese mixture, half of the bacon and 2 tablespoons green onion. Transfer to a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. Top with the cut-up potato skins. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bacon.
  5. Bake 30-35 minutes or until heated through and lightly browned. Sprinkle with remaining green onion. If desired, serve with additional sour cream. Yield: 8 servings.

"My family really liked this recipe they took several helpings.

My granddaughter wanted to make sure she had some to take home."

"This was excellent! I baked the potatoes and scooped out the skins the night before."

"I have made one similar to this for years. I simply bake the potatoes, let them cool a bit and chunk them into edible size pieces. No need to scoop them out or save the skins. I also use 24 oz sour cream, no whipping cream and a pound of bacon. So much easier. My family loves this recipe and there are rarely leftovers."

"Delicious and so much easier than individual twice-baked potatoes. I may never make the traditional version again. I left the potatoes a bit chunky, not completely mashed. My family and guests all enjoyed this flavorful side dish!"

"Delicious! I've also made it with milk instead of cream to go a little lighter on the calories, and that was also good. The potato skins on top add a crunchy texture without needing all the time you normally would to stuff traditional twice-baked potatoes."

"I made this yesterday to serve with steaks and a green salad. Besides the rich and delicious flavor, I loved it because it's easy to make ahead of guests arriving, and then you can just pop it in the oven closer to dinner. This is definitely a recipe I will make again. I can't say enough great things about it!"

"This was definitely worth making again. I tried it once with red potatoes and didn't care for the texture, but have made it since with Yukon Gold potatoes. I didn't find it bland, but once I added a brick of cream cheese to the sauce and that was very nice addition."
