Loaded Baked Gnocchi-this baked gnocchi dish will remind you of a loaded baked potato! It is easy to make and ultimate comfort food!
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!
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:)
