Baked Potato Casserole

This month I'm making a conscientious effort to spice up our side dishes!

It's so easy to focus on the main dish of our meal then throw a side or two together without much thought.  In all actuality our sides should really be thought of as the main dish, full of fresh, wholesome vegetables that take up the majority of the plate.

With that said, here's a quick casserole that came together with very little effort, and it tastes as good as it looks!

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Adapted from {Hott Mama in the City}

6 - Potatoes
1/4 Cup - Unsalted Sweet Butter
1/2 Cup - Shredded Cheese
3 Strips - Bacon, Cooked (Crispy)
Chives (Dried)
Salt & Pepper

  • Peel and cube potatoes, and cook until tender (~20 min.).
  • Cook bacon until crispy and set aside on paper towel.
  • Drain potatoes and add to a casserole dish.
  • Pour melted butter over the potatoes and season with salt and pepper.
  • Top with shredded cheese, crumble bacon then add chives.
  • Bake in the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. 
And I could eat this every week...
Happy Eating!

  1. Oh my! I need to add these to my meal rotation!

  2. You make a very good point about side dishes. I find myself doing the same. Throwing something quick together last minute or skipping the side dish altogether. Yikes! These potatoes look delicious! Thanks for sharing! I don't have a fav side dish link to share with you but will say a simple lettuce salad with quick toppings of chees and tomato usually does the trick for us!

  3. I've totally printed this and absolutely cannot wait to try it! It sounds so yummy!

  4. This is definitely a must try...I'm a sucker for potatoes!
