Make baked potato casserole by scrubbing and baking 1 1/2 pounds of red potatoes in the oven. Then remove the potatoes, and cut them in cubes. Spread half the potatoes on the bottom of a baking dish, and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle 1/2 pound of crumbled cooked bacon on top of the potatoes. Spread 1 1/2 cups of sour cream over the bacon, and sprinkle with 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese and 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Repeat all the layers, and bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Serve topped with two diced green onions.
