Cheesy Potato Casserole

This cheesy potato casserole is the perfect way to feed a family of picky eaters. With all of the components of beloved loaded potato skins (like bacon, sour cream, and cheese), it’s practically impossible for anyone to dislike this casserole. It’s make-ahead friendly, filling, and easily made vegetarian by omitting the bacon. If you’re looking for the ultimate weeknight casserole, this is your recipe.
