Serving Tips:

These loaded potato bake is best served hot, straight from the oven, when the cheese is gooey and the bacon is crispy.
Consider garnishing with chopped fresh herbs, such as parsley or chives, for a pop of color and flavor.
Pair this savory dish with your favorite main dishes, such as grilled steak, roasted chicken, or barbecue ribs, for a complete and satisfying meal.
For added indulgence, top each serving with a dollop of sour cream or a drizzle of hot sauce to suit your taste preferences.
Storage Tips:

If you have any leftovers, allow them to cool completely before transferring them to an airtight container.
Store the leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
When reheating, consider using the oven or toaster oven to help maintain the crispy texture of the bacon and potatoes. Simply cover the dish with foil to prevent drying out and bake until heated through.
Avoid freezing leftovers, as the texture may become mushy when thawed and reheated.
Enjoy the leftovers within a few days to ensure optimal flavor and quality.
