My oldest son turned 26 last week.  I certainly don’t feel old enough to have a 26 year old. In fact, most days I feel like I’m 26 myself. There has been a tradition in our family since our children were small. The person celebrating a birthday gets to pick the menu. For my son Michael, his request never changes. He always asks for my Twice Baked Potato Casserole.

I’ve been making Twice Baked Potato Casseroles for a long time and have always made a large casserole which would feed my family of seven.

Now that it’s just my husband and myself, I have no need or desire to make a large casserole and eat the leftovers for days. This simple small batch baked potato casserole is perfect. It’s definitely more than a single serving and is ideal for two people.

If you’re hosting a small dinner party for three or four people, the size of this baked potato casserole would work well. Especially if served as a side with a main and another side dish.

Twice Baked Potato Casserole

I start out by baking 5 russet potatoes in the oven.

After the potatoes have baked and cooled, scoop out the insides and mash them until they’re mostly smooth but with a few chunks remaining.

To the potatoes, add butter, sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, milk, eggs, and crispy, crumbled cooked bacon.

Mix well and pour the potato mixture into a small baking dish and top with additional cheddar cheese.

Bake the potato casserole in the oven for about 35 minutes.

    Joanie, I am so glad I ran across your blog. I have a lap band and my husband is retied. We don’t eat a lot so even your recipe for 1 is sometimes enough for the two of us and I’ll add fruit or a salad. Keep those recipes coming. God’s blessings on your day!

  2. I don't see the amounts for two servings. 8X8 is way too much for two people, at least the two
    people in our house.

    We have the same tradition of letting the birthday boy pick dinner. Your son made a great choice! I too love twice baked potatoes!

  4. OMGosh!!! I am so excited to have discovered this delicious recipe. My daughter Brooke loves anything that has to do with potatoes. She and her friends actually host a Potato Night Celebration once a year! Yes, they get that into it. This awesome Twice Baked Potato Casserole recipe is a keeper. 🙂

  5. My family loves twice baked potatoes. I haven’t convinced all of them that they should eat the whole thing, skin included. This casserole takes care of those unwanted skins. I really need to try this!

    I want to run out and buy small baking dishes right now so I can start making this tonight!! I love twice baked potatoes AND casseroles but usually don’t eat either because there are too many leftovers.

    My kids love mashed potatoes and cheesy dishes! This would be a great recipe to share with them!

    I am in love with all your recipes for one or 2!! I need to learn how to scale down all my recipes as we waste so much food when we get tired of eating leftovers. I am going to start with these poatoes and move on to the meatloaf!
