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!

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:)

  1. I’m in love! My tongue is suffering from a serious case of “sugar tongue” right now, you know the feeling. When you’ve eaten too much sugar and your tongue actually hurts! This looks magnificent. But with your permission, might add a little extra bacon, ok?!

  2. This savory gnocchi looks oh so yummy! Perfect for the cold weather we’re having in New York. Home for the holidays. Should make this with mom. Thanks for sharing =)

    1. It does freeze well! After it has chilled in the fridge, cut it into individual serving size pieces and vacuum seal them. When you want the gnocchi just take a piece or two out of the freezer and heat them in simmering water until heated through! I actually like it better after heating it this way.

  3. This looks amazing! I am going to make it for a family dinner on Monday! I have to feed 9 (7 of them are growing boys) can I double the recipe and bake in a 9×13? Do you think that is enough to feed everyone?

  4. Made this for dinner last night and we practically ate the whole thing (between the two of us). So good! I made it with 1% milk and light sour cream, and it came out perfect. Such a yummy way to enjoy gnocchi!

  5. It’s baking in the oven right now. It smells delicious and the sauce is terrific. Can’t wait to impress my family at the dinner table tonight!

  6. made it this evening. put a layer of spinach between the gnocchi and adding the sauce. used shredded gouda. left out the bacon. soooo good.

  7. I made this for dinner last night with a couple of slight changes:
    I added onions and cooked them in the butter before adding the garlic.
    I only had one piece of bacon.
    I didn’t have any green onions (which is why I added the onions and cooked them).

    DELICIOUS!!! simple and definitely filling!!!
    I will be making this again and again 🙂
    thank you for a great recipe!!

  8. My entire family loved this!  I didn’t have sour cream so I made buttermilk with 1 cup of milk and 1 TBSP on cidar vinegar.  It was delicious!

  9. So funny — I was working on a menu for Christmas dinner. We usually have blue cheese potatoes (my mom has the BEST recipe ( http://real-food-real-life.com/2016/09/creamy-blue-cheese-potatoes/ ) but I was trying to think of something different this year and had a flash of loaded baked gnocchi. Turned to our friend Google and up popped this recipe, first thing. It was just funny since I was just here on your site a little while ago drooling over (and commenting on) your eggnog bread recipe. Clearly on the same wavelength today.

    I don’t  know how closely you monitor comments on older posts, so you might not see this in time — but where have you found the DeLallo gnocchi locally? (We’re in SLC too.) I think this will be a great side to our cranberry-chipotle glazed pork loin. (And I promise I’m not stalking you — no more comments from me today!!)  😉

  10. You really should try Gia Russa gnocchi. It is THE BEST. I order it from Walmart 4 or 5 packages at a time, as I cannot find it in stores where I live. Pick it up at the store so there is no shipping. It really is superior.

  11. Eating this tonight with a salad. It’s like having a salad with a loaded baked potato. I was as little worried making the sauce. Felt like I was doing it all wrong. But I just kept whisking till it all smoothed out. I’m all for convenience and this dish tasted like it took hours to make. All four of my picky eaters approved!

  12. 5 stars
    This was amazing. My family loved it and it was so easy! Who doesn’t love mac&cheese and loaded mashed potatoes? Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!!!!

  13. Oh this looks amazing! I was pretty sure that I was going to make some sort of cheesy potatoes for Christmas Day but this may Jane changed my mind. Any chance that this could be put together minus the bacon and onions the night before and baked the next day?
