            This is one of those dishes that you can prepare a couple of days ahead of time. You can use up those baked potatoes that no one ate last night. If you want to prepare it ahead of time, do not bake it until right before you’re ready to eat.

            This type of casserole holds a special place in my heart. We began having this a few years ago and oh, the memories we made that year because of this remain some of the best I could ever have. I have made this in a couple of ways. In the casserole dish, like this recipe is what I prefer. The other method is that I will mash up the baked potatoes with skins on and combine all ingredients except the cheeses and the bacon.

I will add only half of the cheese and half of the bacon. I scoop it into a casserole dish, top it with the bacon and half of the remaining cheese. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, then add the remaining cheese and bake until that melts.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            How should I store this?

Store in a tightly closed container and keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

            Can I freeze this dish?

This is the perfect dish for freezing. The milk and sour cream will help hold the consistency. Store it in a freezer safe container for up to 3 months.

            What should I serve with these potatoes?

You could eat this as a meal by itself, or you can serve it with virtually any meat you want. Considering there is bacon in the casserole, I think a baked ham or grilled pork chops would be excellent.
