My daughter gave me this recipe because she knows I love potatoes. The hearty casserole is loaded with a palate-pleasing combination of bacon, cheeses, green onions and sour cream. —Betty Miars, Anna, Ohio

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 pounds red potatoes (about 6 medium), baked
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 3 cups (24 ounces) sour cream

  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 green onions, sliced

Nutritional Facts

1 each: 594 calories, 38g fat (23g saturated fat), 128mg cholesterol, 702mg sodium, 34g carbohydrate (6g sugars, 3g fiber), 24g protein.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Cut baked potatoes into 1-in. cubes. Place half in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with half of the salt, pepper and bacon. Top with half of the sour cream and cheeses. Repeat layers.
  2. Bake, uncovered, 20-25 minutes or until cheeses are melted. Sprinkle with onions. Yield: 6-8 servings.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Warm potatoes can be tough to cut, and they don't hold their shape. Cool completely before cubing them.
  • This is a rich recipe worthy of special occasions, but you can shave a few calories by reducing the sour cream and cheese. Try 2 cups of sour cream and 3 cups total of shredded cheese.

    "A great dish without all the work. Made it for potluck and it was gone before I knew it."

    "I have to agree with the other reviews...way too much sour cream, cheese and bacon. One cup each of sour cream and both cheeses and 4-6 slices of bacon is better in proportion to the potatoes."

    "I didn't read views first but knew that ratios were off. I halved the bacon, cheeses and sour cream to the 1 1/2 lbs of potatoes, used oval baker smaller than 9x13. Very yummy but maybe still less sour cream."

    "i done ALOT of changes to fit my weird eating habits... I mixed the salt & black pepper 2gether - so it measured out to 1/4t - I used low sodium bacon bits or crumbles - used a Mexican blend of cheeses - added red & green bell peppers diced - and added the bottom 1/2's of the green onions to the casserole - sprinkled more of the green onions toppings to the potatoes... EVERY1 loved it! will b making it again... for sure!"

    "My husband and I were looking for a good potato recipe, and we stumbled upon this one. Initially, our first thought was, it makes too much for our little family of two, so we decided to cut the recipe in half. It sounded delicious.

    Once it came out of the oven, that was a different story. The amount of bacon coupled with the sour cream overpowers the dish, so the balance of flavors is too rich. Because the potatoes are such a neutral flavor, they get lost in the casserole. Maybe if you use less of the sour cream and bacon, or more potatoes, that would be the right ratio of bacon to toppings. Also, the presentation wasn't very appealing, because the whiteness of the sour cream dominates the other colors.
    Sadly, this recipe will not be added to our recipe box. Happy cooking! :)"

    "Before I made this I read all the reviews. Based on those I added 3 large potatoes and cut the quantity of sour cream in half. The dish was perfect with those changes."

    "Very good. I didn't read the reviews first, bad decision. I was in a bind with little time and not enough potatoes to fill the bottom of a 9x13 - in first layer. I quickly made some instant potatoes (not something I would make for Christmas Eve but was in a bind). I mixed with the baked potatoes. Turned out great!!"
