Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and halved
1 1/2 cups
shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
ground black pepper
sliced green onions, divided
shredded Cheddar cheese
I made a few changes, added butter (as recommended from the other reviews) and used 2% milk as I did not have any evaporated milk. Used extra bacon (cause all the kids like bacon) and everyone loved it. All had to have second helpings.
I overhauled it with butter and half and half, took out the evaporated milk. I give it points for giving me the idea! Mine turned out AWESOME!
I cut the recipe in half and used 2 medium sized Russet potatoes (in my mind, baked potatoes are Russets). I left the skin on and followed the recipe. The ingredients list says that the green onion quantity will be divided but the instructions only say to sprinkle them on top. I mixed some into the potatoes and left some for the top. I can't say I was overwhelmed with this recipe. I think it really needed some butter. I had to sprinkle quite a bit of salt on my portion to make it edible.
I liked this recipe as a BASE FOR MY OWN CHANGES AND ADDITIONS. Halved the recipe, added butter and slightly more than one quarter cup of sour cream to 4 baked potatoes which I did in the microwave to save time. Certainly a good recipe to make your own, Thanks!
There is a BBQ joint near my house that takes a baked potato and puts all the classic loaded stuff on top of it. THEN they top that with shredded smoked pork, BBQ sauce and french-fried onions. SO...I made this casserole. Then before putting on the last layer of cheese, I topped it with homemade pulled pork, shoestring onions, BBG sauce and then cheese and baked an additional 15 minutes. OMG folks went gaga at my club event!
This was a winner with the kiddos! I followed fellow reviewer's advice and left the skin on my yukons, used whole milk instead of evaporated because that's what avoided a trip to the market, added butter and a smidge of garlic and topped with full pack of bacon because who doesn't love bacon?...rest of recipe remained the same. Perfection! Will make again and again.
I made this dish, like some of the other reviews, I too used 2% milk, instead of evaporated milk, I also used butter, which really helped, of course salt and pepper, overall really great recipe and very simple to make, everyone loved it! I will be making it again
My whole family loved this. Just made it to go with steak for Valentine's dinner. I thought the evaporated milk gave it a lovely consistency. I used 4 Idaho potatoes and no green onions. I didn't have Yukons or green onions. I think this is a great dish for a potluck or as part of a meal to take to a friend.
