Notes

  • To make this for fewer or more people, simply adjust the amount of the ingredients. 
  • Estimate the number of potatoes needed by figuring one good sized potato per person. 
  • Make sure to spray pan with non stick spray so that casserole won't stick. 
  • Reheat at 350 for 20 minutes. 
  • It is fine to make this casserole the day before, just bake before serving. 
  • Make sure to cut the potatoes into bite sized pieces for easy eating. 
Substitutions:   Feel free to change out the "toppings" to anything you like on a baked potato BUT be sure to leave in the wet ingredients and the cheese.  There is a list of ideas in the post. 
PRO TIP:  To make this recipe MUCH easier, use frozen broccoli and precooked bacon!  You'll never taste the difference and then you don't have to fry the bacon or pre blanch the broccoli!
