Ironically I came on here to sumbit almost this exact recipe - and I am also from Indiana?! I just had these for the first time this past Sunday at a pitch in. They were the BEST potatoes I've EVER had (although I had been drinking). They were gone in a flash, and had a much more complex flavor than you would think from the ingredients. *My version uses a bit less Mayo (we used Miracle Whip) and we put a can of chopped black olives over the top. YOU HAVE TO MAKE THIS!

Sorry, I just didn't think this was anything that great. It was alright, but nothing to rave about. Maybe I should have used cheddar and added sour cream as someone suggested.

Easy and delicious! I made mine with chedder cheese since we arn't velveta fans. I also added green onions and 1 c sour cream and salt/pepper. I got rave reviews.

If I could give TEN stars to this I would. I did add about 1/2 cup of sour cream before baking. Everyone raved about these. My friend and her husband insisted on getting the recipe. Will definitely be making these again (and again and again)!!!

I used canned potatoes instead of baked and sharp cheese instead of alternative. It is wonderful and quick! My family loved it and it tastes like it took a long time!

I am asked to make this recipe for every picnic and party that I go to. I usually have to make it at least 10 times each summer! I typically double the recipe because so many people love it. I skimp a little on the mayo, add some dijon mustard and I also add some of the bacon drippings to it. Unhealthy I know but good!

This was one of the best recipes I've used from this site. Put two fried eggs on top with some toast on the side and you have the perfect breakfast, or serve it alone for an awsome side dish.

Bake w/ foil on it for at least part of the time so it does not dry out.
