Fully-loaded baked potatoes are one classic side dish that’s served with steaks, chicken, or any type of BBQ meats. OnePotChefShow has a fully-loaded baked potato casserole tutorial recipe on YouTube that is layered with sour cream, cheese, and bacon. This is a great shareable dish, and I love that about casseroles. It’s easy to have leftovers if you’re making this for a big or small family. I love how rich, cheesy, and creamy this casserole looks. The potatoes looked like they were cooked perfectly. Also, as for any fully-loaded baked potato, use whatever toppings you like with your own variations. This is a great dish if you’re craving a savory side for your meal.
- 4.5 lbs of Potatoes (washed and scrubbed)
- Olive Oil
- Salt and Pepper
- 20 fl. oz of Sour Cream
- 4 Cups of Grated Cheddar Cheese (or any melting cheese you like!)
- 6 Slices of Streaky Bacon (chopped and fried) or any bacon/ham you like
First, get the bacon cooked on a frying pan and let it sit on a towel so it soaks up any excess oil. Then, get the potatoes ready, take a fork, and make prick marks over the surface on both sides. Drizzle the potatoes with olive oil and bake at 425F for 40-45 minutes. Chop the potatoes into chunks for the casserole.
Next, in a large baking dish, start assembling the fully loaded baked potato casserole with the starting layer of potatoes, sour cream, bacon, and grated cheese. Repeat the layers until the baking dish is filled up. Then, bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes.
Overall, I love fully-loaded baked potatoes as a side with a nice steak. I’ve never had it in a casserole form, but it looks delicious. This is a rich and filling side dish that can be served as a full meal too.
