I’ve been making this Loaded Twice Baked Potato Casserole for many years. It’s perfect for potlucks and dinner parties and guests really enjoy it.
Perfect Dish to Bring
This dish is really easy to make and it uses simple and easy to find ingredients. The longest thing about making this dish is waiting for the potatoes to bake in the oven. After the waiting is done, mixing everything together and placing it in the oven is a breeze. When I am taking this dish outside of the home, I buy disposable pans because they can just be thrown away after the event and because the aluminum bottoms keep the food nice and warm while traveling.
Make This Dish Quicker
If you don’t want to take the extra hour’s work to bake these potatoes, you can also boil them until they are soft. The flavors are a little different between baking and boiling- I prefer the baked version because it has more flavor but the ingredient list is the same!
