TWICE BAKED POTATO CASSEROLE

There’s nothing more comforting than twice baked potatoes – unless you turn them into a casserole!

Pure comfort food.  That’s what this Twice Baked Potato Casserole is all about.  Last week my husband had a potluck at work.  He texted me saying that he needed me to make potato salad. Potato salad??  It just sounded so boring.  I had made a baked potato salad for his coworkers before and it had gone over quite well and so I thought I’d make that again.
I started by baking up some russet potatoes.  You can use whatever variety you like best.  After a quick rub down of olive oil and kosher salt, they get baked up nice and crisp in the oven.  I bake my potatoes on a sheet pan to keep my oven from getting all messy.  You can wrap them in foil but then you won’t get the super crispy skins which is what I was going for.

After the potatoes are baked up nice and tender, let them cool until you can handle them with ease. I left my skins on because the crispy potato skins are part of the twice baked potato experience.  If that freaks you out, just peel the skin off.  It comes off super easily after the potatoes are baked.

Now it’s time to mix them with all of you favorite twice baked potato fixins.  I used sour cream, sharp cheddar cheese, bacon, and green onions as well as a bit of mayo to help this casserole hold together and to make it extra creamy.  It’s a must.
There's nothing more comforting than twice baked potatoes - unless you turn them into a casserole! This Twice Baked Potato Casserole has all your favorite flavors from a twice baked potato but in a deliciously fabulous casserole from - yum!

You know about the auto insurance companies that boast about their low premiums on national television, radio and social media. They really want you to internalize their messages. The truth of the matter, though, is that there may be a misconception about what they mean. "Replace your current coverage with ours," they proclaim, "and you'll find savings on your auto insurance!" Or "Allow us ten minutes and we will present you with a cheaper rate than others." The real facts indicate that most vehicle drivers will not get any savings with a policy switch to a direct insurance company. This is because no dependent company has the wherewithal to offer any other coverage than their own. The shimmer of a cheap quote can actually be the mask covering an increased insurance deductible and less liability coverage. In order to underscore this important lesson, we bring you this actual narrative involving someone who decided to go with an independent agency's ability to locate tailored car insurance for him. A motorist who had previously been insured through one of these highly advertised dependent companies that promote 'cheaper rates' decided to go with an independent agency known for their impeccable customer service. Following a review of this man's 'cheap' auto policy, the insurance specialist discovered some serious gaps in coverage. Understanding this could cause serious problems if the insured should ever be involved in a car accident, she went to work, looking through the many policies offered through her company's network of providers. She pinpointed an excellent plan that covered the gaps and had an attached competitive low rate. The customer was satisfied with the find and left with a fresh peace of mind due to his newly acquired policy. As fate would have it, it was not long afterwards that this insured was involved in a car crash that left his vehicle in a totaled condition. Because the other driver was at fault in this collision, it was assumed that the other driver's insurance company would pay for the damages. But there was one major snag to this. The other insurance company offered to pay an amount that was far below the totaled car's worth. It was then that the new policyholder whose car had been totaled decided to call his new company. The insurance company gave him no hassle, no problems. Instead, they mailed him a check made out to the amount that genuinely represented the worth of his car, three thousand dollars above what the at fault driver's insurance company offered! Guaranteed: the happy ending to this true-to-life story would have been very different if that 'cheap premium' policy with gaps in coverage would have been in place.

Do you have the right car insurance? Well, many people think that it is a must to have the right car insurance. It will be better if you get the best one with cheap auto insurance. While most people know whether they have liability, collision or comprehensive coverage, some people pay much attention to their insurance coverage until after they have been in an accident, the others just do not really care about it. Shopping for car insurance is an important planning topic that is often overlooked since most teenagers are added to mom and dad's insurance policy when they first get behind the wheel and then later shop for the least expensive policy when they have to the pay the bill on their own. In this article, we will be discussing car insurance coverage and so you will get some tips to help you get the most for your money. Cheap auto insurance has two primary benefits. The first one is protecting your assets and the second one is protecting your health. Getting the proper coverage is the first step in the process. These are the basic types of coverage with which most people are familiar: 1. Liability: This coverage pays for third-party personal injury and death-related claims, as well as any damage to another person's property that occurs as a result of your automobile accident. 2. Collision: This coverage pays to repair your car after an accident. It is required if you have a loan against your vehicle because the car isn't really yours - it belongs to the bank, which wants to avoid getting stuck with a wrecked car. 3. Comprehensive: This coverage pays for damage incurred as a result of theft, vandalism, fire, water, etc. If you paid cash for your car or paid off your car loan, you may not need collision or comprehensive coverage. In addition to the coverage listed above, other optional coverage types include the following: a. Full Tort/Limited Tort: Your insurance will be reduced by a few dollars if you give up the right to sue when you get an accident. However, giving up your rights is rarely a smart financial move. b. Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection: Personal injury protection pays the cost of medical bills for the policyholder and passengers. If you have good health insurance coverage, this may not be necessary. c. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: This type provides for medical and property damage coverage if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist. d. Towing: Towing coverage pays for a tow if your vehicle cannot be driven after an accident. If you are a member of an automobile service, or if your vehicle comes with roadside assistance provided by the manufacturer, this coverage is unnecessary. e. Glass Breakage: Some companies do not cover broken glass under their collision or comprehensive policies. In general, this coverage is not worth the long-term cost. f. Rental: This insurance option covers the cost of a rental car, but rental cars are so inexpensive that it may not be worth paying for this coverage.
