Very easy--which I appreciated. To make it a little lighter, I only used a scant quarter cup of reduced-fat sour cream and a scant quarter cup of plain fat free yogurt. I only used a pinch of salt. To add a little more flavor, I did stir in a teaspoon each of onion/garlic powder. The french fried onions and bacon on the top was awesome. We ate every bit of this. GREAT with meatloaf.
VERY rich! Would only add half the butter and half sour cream.
The potatoes were really good. I will mix the bacon and onions into the potatoes next and see how that turns out.
Was a huge hit with the family!
Very tasty dish to go with about anything!
This makes up ahead of time really well. I took it up to the point of baking, the day before Thanksgiving and I cooked and crumbled bacon and left in plastic baggie the day before as well. Thanksgiving day pulled it out of refrigerator an hour before placing in oven, added about a 1/4 of milk and mixed, then cooked for 30 minutes at 325 then topped with additional cheddar, bacon and onion rings, cooked for another 5 minutes then turned off oven and let it sit there until time to put it on the table ( another 30 minutes ). Rave reviews from everyone.
I doubled the recipe and it fit into a 9 X 13 casserole dish perfectly. I didn't quite have the full two cups of sour cream but really it was just fine with less. I didn't pre-melt the butter, just put a room temperature stick in and mashed with the potato masher. I put the garden fresh chives and crispy bacon in the potatoes and then topped with a bit more cheddar and the french fried onions the last five minutes of baking. (Just a tip, boil the potatoes in chicken broth for added extra flavor)
DELICIOUS! Simple, easy to put together and was enjoyed by everyone!
This recipe earned rave reviews from my kids, my wife, and my mother in law! It was very easy to make and tastes wonderfully.
