This is a recipe I have been making for years, and one day decided to put a little twist on it by adding a crunchy topping to it using corn flakes like with my party potatoes, but for added flavor added French Fried onion rings like in the green bean casserole, it has all the goodness of twice baked with a festive flair from the chopped red Bell peppers. The cheese, bacon and sour cream & other ingredients really does bring it all together, and it looks stunning when you bring it to the table. Great for any occasion, not just on holidays.
