Loaded Baked Potato Casserole

Loaded Baked Potato Casserole with Kraft #FreshTake #Cbias

Hi friends! I am so excited to share a fun, new recipe with you today: Loaded Baked Potato Casserole with Kraft Fresh Take! Kraft Fresh Take is a meal kit that provides you with a fresh take on any meal. The cheese and breadcrumb mix gives you flavorful, crisp and cheesy dishes with easy preparation! So when I was tasked to come up with a tasty side with Kraft Fresh Take – I immediately thought of a yummy loaded baked potato! But baked potatoes (depending on how you cook them) can take some time to prep, and I’m usually a quick 30-minute meal kind of gal. So I came up with this idea to mix loaded baked potato ingredients with some mashed potatoes, top with Kraft Fresh Take, and make it a casserole side dish!

Once I had this idea in mind, I headed down to my local Walmart to pick up the groceries. You can see the Google+ Album of my shopping trip here! I grabbed all the things I needed, including Kraft Fresh Take. You can find Kraft Fresh Take varieties in the refrigerated cheese section of your local Walmart.

Once I had groceries in hand, I headed home to whip up the Loaded Baked Potato Casserole as a side to our rotisserie chicken for dinner! Here’s the recipe I came up with.

The end result was amazing. I’m serious. Because I don’t have a lot of time during the week outside of work and other activities, I don’t spend a lot of time in the kitchen. So when I make something that my husband really likes, he says so. Over and over. And this weekend he raved about this dish, and specifically about the Kraft Fresh Take topping. So I’ve started thinking of how I can incorporate more Kraft Fresh Take into our meals! It’s really a quick and easy (and inexpensive!) way to kick your meals up a notch.

Also, be sure to watch for the Kraft Fresh Possibilities Tour truck which will be making stops across the country from March through the end of July. To see if they are making a stop in your town you can check this website: Fresh Possibilities Tour.

  15. This sounds incredible. I gotta try it ASAP.

  16. Heather says:

    What size casserole dish did you use?

    • Hi Heather! It’s a vintage Pyrex dish that I believe holds about 1 1/2 quarts. I just eyeballed what size I needed after I mixed the potatoes, broccoli and bacon together. Hope that helps!

  17. Seeing the prices of those bags of shredded cheese makes me want to cry!!! Where I live in Canada, at my local grocery store those bags of pre-shredded cheese sell for over $9 per bag!!!
    This recipe sounds really good though, and I will definitely be trying it!!!
