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

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min.

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

Directions

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.
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.

    "bwilkin-I agree with you 100%. today at Albertsons I bought a 10lb bag of potatoes > holidays needs on sale. if you do the math waaaay to much extra stuff not near enough potato ratio. I actually thought it was a misprint."

    "I make this every year for Christmas for my family. I put it together the day before in my slow cooker then Christmas day set it on low to warm through so it is ready for dinner in the early afternoon. It is wonderful and one of our favorites."

    "If the reviewer thinks this is vile, then it isn't a review is it?? It's a recipe that is a treat, not something one would prepare every day. It's like a loaded baked potato on a grand scale. Perhaps the person who "thinks" this is vile, should go to a more mundane food website...one for people who are afraid of food. It's all in how moderate you are. BTW, my preference was to cut back a little on the sour cream and cheese. I eliminated the mozzarella and used cheddar and jack, added a little garlic powder and chives. It was great with steak tips and green beans with mushrooms. This is a bona fide review because i actually made it."

    "This sounds vile. No way I'll try this. "Taste of Home" you REALLY missed the mark on choosing this as your "Recipe Of The Day"."

    "What a disappointment this dish was. I love potatoes and could not wait to try this. Too much sour cream and cheese for our tastes. Wish I had only made half the recipe to try it. You cant even taste the potatoes that well. Made as directed except for the green onions, omitted them. Won't be making this one again."

    "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!"
