Cheesy Potatoes {with bacon!!}

Loaded with cheese and bacon, these potatoes are going to disappear before you even know what happened! Great for BBQs, potlucks or family dinners!


   We all love the traditional cheesy potato casserole.  It is so creamy and delicious, but sometimes it is nice to switch it up a bit.  These potatoes are just the thing!  MiMi first made these back in 2015.  It had been a little while so we had to have them again.  So when grilled pork chops made the family dinner menu, it was time to break these gems back out!

    Rather than hash browns like the traditional cheesy potato casserole, this recipe starts with new potatoes.  Since there are bite sized chunks of potatoes, the flavor really carries through.  But of course, the cheese and bacon are the star of the show!


    This batch barely hit the counter before it disappeared.  We were darn close to literally licking the pan clean.  MiMi had been hoping to use the leftovers for breakfast with fried eggs, but she had to come up with another plan.  While that would have been delicious, it would have required a second batch.  Maybe next time!

  1. I saw that picture and thought "I need to make those. They look so good. ". Funny, I did make them. ☺️ They were so good and easy to make. A person really could cut back on the butter a bit if that's a concern. Everyone really did like them.

  17. Hi Carlee, I do make something similar, but just use bacon and onion. The addition of cheddar cheese takes the recipe up a notch, which means I may not get a look in!
