If Samwise Gamgee had a food blog, these potato casserole recipes would be on the front page. His top pick? The twice baked potato casserole, a hearty, comforting favorite.


  • 6 large Russet potatoes, scrubbed

  • 10 ounces bacon

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted

  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, at room temperature

  • 3/4 cup whole milk, warm

  • 1/2 cup sour cream

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese, divided

  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

  • 3 green onions, sliced

  • 1/4 cup canola oil

  • Optional: chopped chives, for garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Scrub the potatoes clean, wipe them dry, and rub them with canola oil. Place them on a baking sheet and bake for about 40 minutes, until they can be easily sliced through.
  • While the potatoes are baking, cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until golden and crispy, about 6-8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to cool, then crumble.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter, cream cheese, warm milk, and sour cream.
  • Once the potatoes are cool enough to handle, slice them in half and scoop out the flesh into the bowl with the wet ingredients. Roughly mash everything together.
  • To the potato mixture, add salt, pepper, half of the cooked bacon, half of the grated cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese, and most of the green onions. Stir to combine.
  • Lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Transfer the potato mixture to a lightly greased 9×13 inch baking dish. Top with the remaining cheddar cheese and bacon.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes, or until the casserole is heated through and the cheese is melted and slightly golden.
  • Let the casserole rest for a few minutes before serving. Garnish with the remaining green onions and optional chives.
  • Serve and enjoy!


  • Use a potato masher for a chunkier texture or an electric mixer for a smoother consistency, depending on your preference.
  • Pierce the potatoes with a fork before baking to allow steam to escape and prevent bursting.
