Loaded Potato Casserole

Let me introduce you to one of my favorite recipes that I’ve been making for years: the loaded potato casserole. Basically, loaded baked potatoes, in casserole form. Made with crispy bacon, gooey cheese, golden brown potatoes, and a creamy ranch dressing, this hearty side dish is pure comfort food. 

If you’re looking for a complete meal for Sunday dinner or a holiday, Try it with Instant Pot Beef Short Ribs and Air Fryer Butternut Squash.

Don’t let the word “comfort food” freak you out. This delicious side dish has all the components of comfort food, but is made with nonfat Greek yogurt as opposed to sour cream, heavy cream, or cream cheese. With no butter or olive oil and just a bit of mozzarella cheese, there’s a perfect amount of cheesiness without being too heavy or fattening.

How to make this loaded baked potato casserole

Step 1: preheat, prep and cook potatoes

Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Chop potatoes into quarters or bite-sized pieces. Spray a 9 x 13 casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Place potatoes in prepared baking dish, add salt and black pepper and bake for 20 minutes.

Step 2: prep chicken and ranch

While the potatoes cook, chop chicken into bite-sized pieces and mix ranch ingredients in a small bowl.

Step 3: mix casserole ingredients together

When the potatoes are done cooking, add raw chicken and ranch to the dish and stir to evenly coat the potatoes and chicken in the ranch.

Step 4: cook chicken with potatoes and ranch dressing

Place back in the oven for 20-25 minutes until the chicken is fully cooked through.

Step 5: cook bacon, add toppings and return to oven

While the chicken and potatoes cook, cook your bacon on the stove until crispy. Chop into bite-sized pieces. When the chicken is cooked through and the potatoes are fork tender, top with cheese and bacon bits and place back in the oven for another 5-7 minutes until the cheese is fully melted.

Step 6: remove from oven and add additional toppings

Remove from oven and add green onions and hot sauce (optional) and enjoy.
