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.
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.
