Creamy, cheesy potatoes are topped with bacon and even more cheese for a delicious and hearty side dish.

Ingredients

  • 10 medium russet potatoes

  • 1/2 lb bacon, diced

  • 4 tbsp sliced butter

  • 3/4 cup sour cream

  • 4 tbsp cream cheese

  • 5 green onions, chopped

  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

  • 3/4 cup milk

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp pepper

  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350โ„‰.
  • Peel and dice the potatoes. Add the potatoes to a pot of boiling water and boil until fork tender, about 8-10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  • Cook the diced bacon in a skillet over medium heat until cooked through. Move to a paper towel-lined plate to cool and absorb excess grease.
  • Add the potatoes, sliced butter, sour cream, cream cheese, green onions (reserve some for garnish), bacon (reserve some for garnish), 1 cup of cheese, milk, salt, pepper, and thyme to a large bowl and mix well with a potato masher or hand mixer. Taste and add more milk if too dry, and more salt and pepper as needed.
  • Grease a 9×13 baking dish. Pour the potato mixture in and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the cheese is melty. Broil for the last 1-2 minutes. Top with the reserved green onions and bacon. Enjoy!

  1. Do you think this could be prepped a day before and cooked the next day?

    Can this be assembled and then put in the freezer as a make-ahead side dish? If so, how do you suggest to reheat?
