Time to make these cheesy bacon potatoes in the oven:

To begin start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. 

Then, wash and peel all of the russet potatoes. After that is done, cut all of them into small 1 inch sized pieces. 

Now, place the cut-up potatoes into a large pot and add in enough cold water to cover the potatoes by about 2 inches. Turn the burner on to medium-high heat and bring the water to a boil. 

Once the water reaches a boil, reduce the heat and let the potatoes simmer. You will cook the potatoes until they are tender and can be easily pierced with a pairing knife. This should take about 20 minutes. 

When they are done, pour the potatoes into a colander to drain the water and return the potatoes to the large pan and cover them with a lid. 

While the potatoes are cooking, heat a large skillet over medium heat and add in the bacon strips and cook them until they are crisp and brown. Try and turn them only once in the process.

Once the bacon is done, remove them from the pan and place the bacon on paper towels to let them drain and cool down. 

After the bacon has cooled down crumble it into small pieces. 

Now, with the drained potatoes in the large pan, add in the cream cheese, butter, and sour cream and beat everything together with a hand mixer until they are well combined and smooth. 

Then, add in the green onions, 2 cups of cheddar cheese, half of the crumbled bacon, salt, and pepper. Using a large spoon or spatula, stir everything together until they are completely combined. 

Next, transfer the mashed potatoes to the greased 9×13 inch baking pan and top it with the remaining ½ cup of cheddar cheese. 

Place the paned mashed potatoes into the oven and bake it until the top is slightly golden brown and the potatoes have been heated all the way through. This should take about 30 minutes. 

Once it is done, remove it from the oven and garnish it with the leftover bacon crumbles and serve it!

  1. I made this the other night and it was SO GOOD!! My bf scarfed it down and had seconds! He is usually not big on leftovers but this was gone in just a couple days! The only thing is I only had about 2.5 lb of potatoes so I halved the recipe - but "forgot" to half the bacon. :) I have this on the menu again tomorrow night (we literally finished the leftovers from last time like 2 days ago) - that is how much we love it! Definitely being added to the "rotation."

    As a note - we both agree that, like most other mashed potato and soup recipes, the flavors really came out in the leftovers. :)
    Another note - I made your chicken cordon bleu casserole the day before this and it was also amazing!! Thanks for your awesome recipes!! -M.
  2. I have been making something similar for many years. The difference is that I add chopped onions (because they make me happy) and switch out the cream cheese and use Ranch dressing (the fresh kind in the veggie section made with yogurt). I seldom make it anymore, because I am getting fatter just thinking about it. But I bet yours are delicious.
