Loaded Baked Gnocchi Recipe

We are taking a break from sweets today, are you shocked? I tend to go a little sugar crazy in December. I think Josh was getting a little tired of my cookie baking extravaganza because he asked if he could make a savory recipe:) I said sure and let him make dinner while I made another batch of cookies:)

Josh whipped up Loaded Baked Gnocchi. This dish has all of the wonderful flavors of a loaded baked potato, but in a baked gnocchi casserole! Josh nailed this recipe! It is ultimate comfort food and perfect for a cold night!

When we first got married, we used to make homemade gnocchi, but then we discovered DeLallo’s gnocchi and haven’t made it since. DeLallo’s gnocchi is SO good and only takes minutes to make! It is perfect for quick and easy meals! One of our favorite gnocchi recipes is our Crispy Gnocchi with Basil Pesto…and now we have a new favorite! This Loaded Baked Gnocchi is awesome!

Loaded Baked Gnocchi Recipe

This Loaded Baked Gnocchi dish is a mix between baked mac and cheese and a loaded baked potato. Josh made a cheesy sour cream sauce to pour over the potato gnocchi and topped it with more cheese, green onion, and bacon. Is your mouth watering? Yeah, you need to make this one! And the best part? It is super easy which makes it perfect for weeknight meals or entertaining. If you are looking for a recipe to feed your holiday guests, make them Loaded Baked Gnocchi. Warning, they might not leave though. They will want you to cook for them every day:)

And if you are a vegetarian, like me, you can leave off the bacon. Josh made me a little dish without the bacon and it was really tasty! You can add your favorite baked potato toppings! It really does taste like a loaded baked potato!

Add Loaded Baked Gnocchi to your dinner menu! You can’t go wrong with this easy, cheesy, and comforting dish! And if you want to have cookies for dessert, go for it! You can never have to much sugar during the holidays:)

  • Preheat oven to 350˚F. Spray a 9" x 9" baking dish with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  • Boil a pot of water and cook gnocchi according to package instructions. Drain and arrange in a single layer at the bottom of the prepared dish.
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Stir in garlic and cook until lightly golden, about 1 minute. Whisk in flour until mixture thickens. Add the milk and whisk until the sauce thickens, about 3 minutes. Whisk in 1 cup of the cheese. Whisk until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in the sour cream. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Pour sauce over gnocchi. Sprinkle remaining cheese, green onions, and bacon over the gnocchi.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, or until bubble and cheese is melted. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes. Serve warm.
  • Note-to make this dish vegetarian, leave out the bacon! It is still good:)

  1. We made this tonight. We did not have any cheddar cheese but we did have 6 blend Italian cheese.
    It was very good. Wish I could load up the photo.

    1. I made this tonight and added sliced grilled chicken to it and substituted ranch dressing in place of sour cream. OMG!! Was amazing!!

  2. 5 stars
    Made this for the first time tonight…it was a hit!!! I think the green onion really helped pop the flavor! I used extra bacon that I slow-cooked to be very crisp, garlic was a nice touch. It was so light that the flavor was NOT overpowering. Will definitely make this again! Wish I could post a photo. It looked lovely!

  3. Probably should be a 1 pound package of gnocchi. I had 10lb sack of taters visions when I read that. My roommate is new fan of gnocchi and baked potato so seems like a match maid in heaven.

  4. 4 stars
    Great recipe! I added some cooked, chopped broccoli and it was a hit with my family. I might loosen the cheese sauce a bit next time, but there will be a next time!

  5. 5 stars

    My daughter asked me to make gnocchi so I Googled and found this recipe. Only ingredient I left out was the spring onion and I added a bit more bacon. It turned out well. Easy to make and very yummy.

  7. 3 stars
    Loved the dish my husband prepared it for me and it was my first time eating gnocchi we’re glad we went with this recipe

  8. This was ridiculously good! I used GF gnocchi and cornstarch instead of flour. No bacon but found Canadian bacon in the fridge. It far eclipsed the main dish!

  9. 4 stars
    We are trying this tonight but we are adding in some diced seasoned chicken with the gnocchi. Sounds amazing and can’t wait to try it.

  10. I made a double batch and brought this to the office a few months ago. Everyone just absolutely raved about it. I will make it again in a few days and bring it in. I love making a crowd happy. Thanks for sharing!!!
