  • 4 lbs red skinned potatoes
  • 4 cloves fresh garlic
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup of sour cream (I use light)
  • 1/2 cup of milk or cream (add more or less to taste)
  • 4 oz cream cheese , softened (I used light)
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 10 slices bacon , cooked crisp and chopped or 1/2 cup of bacon bits
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • 1 green onion sliced
  • 2 slices of bacon , cooked & crumbled
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. Wash potatoes, peel off about 2/3 of the skin, (leaving some on the potatoes) and chop into large chunks. Slice the cloves of garlic into 3 pieces each. Boil the potatoes and garlic in a large pot of water until potatoes are tender (about 15 minutes).
  3. Drain potatoes & garlic and mash slightly with a potato masher. Add in remaining ingredients (except toppings) and mash to desired consistency.
  4. Place into a casserole dish, add toppings and bake for 25-30 minutes or until cheese is melted and potatoes are hot.

  23. could I make this and freeze before the final cooking process?

  27. Can you make this ahead of time?

    • Yes, you can definitely make this ahead of time. If it’s been refrigerated, you may need to increase baking time to ensure it’s hot in the middle.

  44. Bit of a misnomer. Twice baked potatoes should be baked twice. However as a *-Baked Potato Casserole -*it was good.

  45. Has anyone tried it with something other than redskin potatoes?  Do you think the redskin definitely adds to the overall result?
