My family completely devoured this casserole. As usual I did make some changes. I scaled the recipe down to 10 servings, left out the onions, and used home made cheddar cheese sauce. Had I used velveeta or cheese wiz it probably would have been inedible at my house, but for those who like processed cheese you would probably like the recipe as is. The only thing that would make it better is some buttered bread crumbs on top (they make all casseroles better!)

The only reason why I am marking this as a 4 is because I did not add all of the ingredients or follow the recipe to the letter. I did not use onions or chives. I really just guessed at all the measurements of ingredients also. I used 9 pounds of potatoes, 16 ounces of cheese sauce and sour cream. About 1 cup or a little more of mayo. I just kinds of threw it together, and it was wonderful! Thanks for the recipe.

I reduced this recipe down to two and half lbs. of red potatoes. I also didn't have any processed cheese so I used all cheddar cheese. I really was lazy and felt the potatoes would cook in the oven without pre-boiling, so I just cut them into small bite sized pieces, greased the pan real good, mixed everything up and threw it all in the pan. I cooked them for 60 minutes covered at 350. I did take them out halfway and stir them so they wouldn't burn on the bottom. They were cooked just right, fork tender, without pre-boiling. I do think they needed some more seasoning, the only reason for 4 stars. We do like Velveeta and I'll try them again with some, but if you're not a fan of processed cheese this recipe works fine without it.

I've made this recipe several times now for family get-togethers. Both times I followed the exact recipe, always feeling like I've made more than I should. I've yet to bring one bite home. Buy a aluminum foil roasting pan, with a lid and you won't be left with dirty dishes. I do suggest baking it on top of a cookie sheet so the pan doesn't buckle when you take it out of the oven. It's delicious, absolutely delicious. Just don't cut corners on the bacon or cheese. I would suggest doubling the chives, they really bring out the flavor.

We substituted some Philadelphia cream cheese alfredo spread/sauce (because that's what we had in the fridge)for the cheese sauce and it was delicious. I did boil the potatoes ahead of time and scaled down to a smaller batch size. They were delicious.

Substituted some sliced green onions (tops only) since I was out of chives. Took it to a Sunday School party - a hit! Got requests for the recipe. Thanks for posting it.
