Baked Potato Casserole

in Dinner

This might be more of a Frittata than a Casserole. I'm not sure. At any rate it is some seriously yummy and hot comfort food in case your insides feel as cold as the frigid midwest.

I love bake potatoes. Truly. And they are a perfect single lady dinner, because you can easily make one or two small potatoes for yourself. No shame.

But if you happen to making Sunday lunch for your family, this casserole is a great way to serve up something with similar tastes, just a bigger "family-sized" portion.

Also, I am pretty sure there is an old episode of Friends where Jennifer Aniston's character gets Courtney Cox's character to make dinner for her date and pretend Jen made it. And Courtney teases her that the only thing she can cook is baked potatoes and diet coke.

The things we remember…

My point is, if you want to be cool like Jennifer Aniston (and don't lie, who doesn't?) then you should make a baked potato casserole for you family. Just saying.

Also, I got to use this cute vintage casserole dish that Rachel got me for Christmas. Isn't it adorable! Thanks again, Rach!

Baked Potato Casserole

Ingredients: 8-10 small to medium sized potatoes, 2/3 cup cream, 3 eggs, 1/2 cup butter, 1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese, 1/3 cup chopped green onions (or chives), salt and pepper, and sour cream to serve with.

Wrap the potatoes in foil, poke a few holes and bake at 400 F for 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours (depending on how large your potatoes are). Then slice them up and place them in a buttered dish. I left the skins on, but if you don't like skins then peel these before you bake them. In a bowl mix together eggs, cream, remaining melted butter and salt and pepper. Pour this mixture over the potatoes. Sprinkle on green onions and cheese. Bake at 400 F for another 10-12 minutes until cheese is very bubbly. Serve with sour cream.

Eat until you have a food coma. Then skip dinner and sleep. It's winter, do as the bears do. :)

Haha, I totally remember that episode! :) By the way, I love baked potatoes wrapped in tinfoil. The first time I talked about them with David, I called them “jacket potatoes” (I’d learnt that term when I was in England), David said, “What the hell?! Hahahaha, hahaha …”. I like the name “jacket potato”, hehe.
Sily story, sorry :/. And I’ll definitely give your recipe a try ;) .
Have a great weekend, Emma!

Brett just said he’d love to wake up after a long hibernation having just lost 50 pounds but he’d need one big diaper.
However, your potatoes look DIVINE! So glad you like your casserole dish!

I make something similar…but with no eggs.. And I think anything with cheese is good…

Kayleigh January 31, 2011 at 3:15 pm

Looks delicious! The only change I would make is to add crumbled bacon. But that’s because I love bacon. And it goes so well with potatoes!
