A Great Low Carb Substitute

If you are thinking these look great but have too many carbs for your liking, try Twice Baked Cauliflower Casserole. Twice Baked Cauliflower Casserole is a great low carb substitute for twice baked potatoes. 7 ingredients and 3 net carbs! No, it is not exactly the same–it is cauliflower. But it is really, REALLY good in its own right and has very similar ingredients.

How to Cook the Potatoes:

I prefer to cook my potatoes in the microwave. It is much quicker than the oven. Do it however you like of course.

To cook them in the microwave:

Wash and poke each potato several times with a fork.

Place 4 on a plate in a spoke pattern so they are not touching.

Microwave on high about 6 minutes, flip and another 6 minutes. Test by poking with a fork and add a couple more minutes if needed.

Cook about 30 minutes before you need to peel and cut them for the casserole so they have time to cool some. Cut them in half to speed cooling.

The Bacon:

I almost always use freshly cooked bacon but have sometimes used precooked bacon from a bag. It worked just fine too. Use about 1 cup of that. 

Cook the bacon however you prefer. I like to cook it in the microwave. See How To Cook Bacon in the Microwave.

Can Twice Baked Potato Casserole Be Made Ahead of Time?

You could assemble this a few hours ahead of time. Keep in the refrigerator until ready to bake.

Can Twice Baked Potato Casserole Be Frozen?

Since it contains sour cream and potatoes, it is not recommended to freeze it. Both change in consistency that is not desirable to most people. That said, it doesn’t spoil it to freeze it. If you don’t mind that, go for it. 😊

Key Ingredients

(Full printable ingredients and instructions are just below.)

Unpeeled potatoes, baked–bake about 30 minutes before assembling to give them time to cool

Pepper

Crumbled bacon–freshly made or prepackaged

Sour cream

How to Make Twice Baked Potato Casserole

Bake potatoes. I wash, pierce with fork and microwave for 12 minutes, flipping half way through. I put 4 on a plate in a spoke pattern with even space between them. Cook until soft. Do this step a little ahead of time so they have time to cool enough to handle.

Cut baked potatoes into 1 inch cubes. This is much easier if you let potatoes cool some first.

Place half of the potatoes in a sprayed 9X13 baking dish.
