Twice Baked Potato Casserole

April 24, 2017 by braytonbb

I found this delicious twice baked potato casserole recipe the other day on the Mom on Timeout website. Like most recipes that I find, I go by the instructions loosely and then I tweak the recipe to more of my liking or with what I have on hand. I have included the recipe below on what I did, but I think you will find that whatever you do, this is sure to turn on for your next breakfast or even side dish for dinner.

Twice Baked Potato Casserole – Serves 6

6 medium potatoes, scrubbed and dried, 2 TB olive oil, 1 TB sea salt, 1 TB pepper, 2 TB chives, divided, 3/4 lb bacon cooked and crumbled, 1 1/2 C shredded cheese, 1/2 C miracle whip, 1/2 C sour cream, and 1 small yellow onion chopped

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Rub potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper and place on a cookie sheet. Bake for about 45 minutes until tender. Let cool for about 15 minutes.

Cut potatoes into bite size pieces and place in a bowl. Its okay if they fall apart slightly. Stir in miracle whip, sour cream, onions, 1 TB chives, 3/4 of the bacon, and 1 C cheese. Spoon into a 9×9 baking dish. Top with remaining cheese and bacon but set aside about 2TB bacon and 1 TB of chives or a garnish.  Cover with foil and let site over night and bake in the morning or turn the oven down to 350 degrees and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving. Serve with an extra dollop of sour cream sprinkled with chives and bacon.

We served our casserole with a side of strawberry bread, grapes and peppered twisted bacon which is a house favorite.

 

Baked Potato Quiche

July 30, 2015 by braytonbb

We tend to have the same folks stay with us each year for EAA (for the most part). I think they have had every breakfast I make, that is within reason. When serving 12, you make a few things that you wouldn’t make for 2 and vice versa. With that being said, I like to experiment a couple times throughout the week. Last week I decided to make this baked potato quiche that I adapted from a Betty Crocker Recipe. It is one that I will make again. In fact, I might even make it for dinner some night as well.

Baked Potato Quiche– serves 6-8 baked potato quiche

Crust – 2 1/2 C Bisquick mix, 6 TB cold butter, 1/4 C boiling water

Filling – 1 1/2 C chopped cooked ham, 1 1/2 C frozen diced hash brown potatoes, 1 1/2 C shredded sharp cheddar cheese, 3 med. green onions sliced, 5 eggs, 3/4 C half and half, 1/2 tsp. pepper, 1/2 tsp. sea salt, 3 slices crisply cooked, crumbled bacon and sour cream

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 10″ deep pie plate.

Place Bisquick mix in a med. bowl. Cut in butter until crumbly. Add boiling water and stir until a soft dough forms. Press dough into the bottom and up the sides of the pie pan, forming an rough edge on the rim of the plate.

Sprinkle ham, potatoes, cheese and 2 1/2 green onions (sliced) in the crust. Beat eggs, half and half, salt and pepper until blended. Pour over ingredients in crust.

Bake 1 hour. Let stand 15 minutes before serving to set up. Top with sour cream, crumbled bacon and additional onions and cheese if you like.
