Instructions

1. To make the potato casserole: Preheat oven to 375ºF (190ºC). Butter a rectangular baking pan.

2. Layer half of the shredded potato in the dish. Season with salt, pepper, and chili pepper flakes. Sprinkle the cheeses on top of the potatoes and add the crumbled bacon pieces. Add the other half of the potato shreds on top.

3. In a small bowl, mix together the softened cream cheese, milk, and eggs. Pour the mixture over top of the potatoes. Sprinkle with cheese.

4. Bake for 45 – 60 minutes, or until the potatoes are cooked and the cream cheese, eggs, and milk custard is set. Sprinkle with fresh parsley and allow the loaded potato casserole to rest for 15-20 minutes before serving with a grilled steak, chicken, or on its own. Enjoy!

Tips for the potato casserole recipe

  • Try adding other kinds of cheese like Gruyère, feta, Parmesan or Gorgonzola to change up the flavor of the loaded potato casserole.
  • After baking, top the potato casserole with your favorite baked potato toppings like heavy cream and chives, chili, salsa or even cooked chicken leftover.
