Baked Potato Casserole! **Bonus Some Family Photos!

Today we celebrated our 46th wedding anniversary with our children and grandchildren at our home for an easy family  dinner.. I made our family favorite dish Porketta and I also decided to try a new recipe for a side and I was super pleased at the results!  Baked Potato Casserole!!  It was posted on Facebook a few days or so ago and I thought today was a good day to try it since we were having an easy, very relaxing, anniversary dinner with the children and grandchildren.  

Super delicious and special were peanut butter and chocolate fudge and marbled brownies were our dessert along with fresh fruit salad.  It was a great day! A lot of laughs and funny jokes from the grandchildren as well as good conversation.  A plus were looking through old photos.  That is bound to get a chuckle or two or three or four!  
Here is the recipe along with some photos of the beautiful day spent with family.

Baked Potato Casserole

8 medium potatoes (about 2 ½ to 3 lbs total weight, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks)
1 cup 2% milk
½ cup light sour cream
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (divided)
6 slices bacon (cooked until crispy and crumbled)
sliced green onions
Eliminate bacon if you want a meatless dish.

Place the potato chunks in a large pot. Fill with enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil. Cook over medium-high heat for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender. Drain. Preheat the oven to 350⁰F. Grease a 2 ½-3 quart casserole dish. Return potatoes to the pot. Add evaporated milk, sour cream, salt and pepper. Beat with a hand held mixer until smooth. Stir in 1 ½ cups of cheddar cheese and half of the bacon. Spoon the potato mixture into prepared casserole dish. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until heated through. Top with remaining ½ cup of cheddar cheese, remaining bacon, and green onions. Bake for an additional 3 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
