How to Make Baked Potato Casserole
1Peel potatoes and reserve the skin.
Chop the potatoes into 1/2 inch chunks and boil until fork tender, 15-20 minutes.
2Meanwhile, heat a cast iron skillet over medium high heat and add bacon fat and olive oil.
Toss the reserved potato skins with 1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper.
Preheat your oven to High Broil.
3Fry the potato skins in the fat until they are tender, then put under the broiler until they crisp and brown. Set to the side on a plate and turn oven from Broil to 450*.
4Cream the potatoes with the butter, cream and sour cream. Add the remaining salt, pepper and the green onions. Stir well to combine.
5Place the slices of bacon on an 11" x 15" pan and place in oven. Cook until brown and crisp.
6Remove from the pan and let cool. Spread the mashed potatoes over the pan.
Spread the cheese over the potatoes and sprinkle with the skins and the bacon.
