One of my favorite things about this easy side dish is that you can completely make this casserole ahead of time.

Refrigerate up to 3 days before serving, then bake as usual. Heads up – you’ll need to add a bit to the cooking time if it’s been chilled.

And then – go time!

It’s the perfect side for holiday gatherings, family dinners, church potlucks and game day food! Serve this casserole and you’ll feel the love in every bite!

How to Cook the Potatoes

I like to use Yukon gold potatoes in this side dish because you don’t have to peel them. But if you prefer, you can use russet or another type of potato.

To bake potatoes in the oven, preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. Prick potatoes several times with a fork to allow steam to escape.

Place the potatoes in the oven and bake, 50-60 minutes until the potatoes are done and can easily be pierced with a sharp knife.

Cool potatoes slightly until they’re warm enough to handle. Cut potatoes into quarters and add to a large bowl.

How to Make Loaded Twice Baked Potato Casserole

Using a potato masher, mash the potatoes and add the onion powder, sour cream, cream cheese.

Try not to over mix or the potatoes will become gummy.

Once incorporated, add the shredded cheddar cheese, cooked bacon and green onions.

Reserve a bit of bacon and green onions for garnish.

Cover foil and bake until heated through. Remove the foil to slightly brown the top and edges.

Yum!!!!

Pin it for later!
