Baked Potato Casserole – A perfect side dish to accompany any family gathering meal for the holidays or even a BBQ.
This is a super easy side dish. I love making it for just about anything. It’s all the flavors of a baked potato but in a much easier to serve form. This recipe comes from my husband’s aunt. I just adore my husband’s aunts! They are so sweet and instantly welcomed me into the family when we started dating sixteen years ago. This was one of the first dishes I tried from them. I was in love! I could share a ton of others too. One of his aunts is a big cookbook collector like me. There is even a family cookbook, which is awesome!
- 8-10 potatoes (Red or Brown), peeled and cubed
- 1 1b. block Velveeta, cut into small cubes
- 1-1 1/2 cups of mayo (I usually use 1 cup, but it depends on the number/size of potatoes)
- 3-4 green onions, chopped
- 1 package Real bacon pieces (found with salad dressings/toppers)
- Boil cubed potatoes until tender and drain.
- In a large bowl, mix potatoes with mayo and cheese. Mix in green onions, reserving a few for the top.
- Pour into a casserole dish sprayed with cooking spray.
- Top with bacon pieces and green onions.
- Bake at 350, covered for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for 5-10 more minutes.
I find brown potatoes give it a creamier consistency. Use whichever kind of potatoes you prefer.
