A creamy cheesy Twice Baked Potato Casserole made with crisp smoked bacon, cheddar, Monterey Jack, and scallions.  Finish baking the casserole in an oven or in a crock pot for party time pleasure.


  • 6 medium to large potatoes (russet or gold)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup whole or 2% milk
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 cups shredded cheddar
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack
  • 8 slices bacon cooked crispy and crumbled
  • 4 green onions


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Wash, dry, and prick the potatoes with a fork. Place in the oven and bake for 45-60 minutes or until fork tender.
  2. Plunge the baked potatoes into ice cold water.  Using your fingers gently peel the potatoes. Cut the hot potatoes into large cubes and scoop into a large bowl.
  3.  Add the butter, sour cream, milk, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese, half the bacon, and half the scallions.  Mash with a handheld potato masher and spoon into a 2 quart baking dish.  Top with the remaining cheese, bacon, and green onions.
  4. Bake 30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the casserole is hot.


  • Use Russet or Yukon Gold potatoes for this recipe.
  • Plan ahead so there is plenty of time to bake the potatoes.
  • Once baked plunge the potatoes into ice water making them easy to peel with your fingers.
  • Any good melting cheese works well with this recipe including cheddar, Monterey Jack, Pepper Jack, Colby Jack, Gouda, or Provolone.
  • Use good quality smoked bacon and cook it crispy.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • Reheat leftovers in the microwave at a reduced power or in the oven at 350 degrees covered for about 30 minutes or until warm.
