Bacon Potato Casserole: My Mom’s Go-To Side Dish

Posted Jul 1st, 2014

Today, I’m going to brag on my mom. She’s a good cook. Scratch that. She’s a great cook. She doesn’t write down her recipes and typically just cooks to taste. Therefore her chili, cakes and cutlets never taste quite the same. However this past weekend, I had her share her go-to potato dish with me that she was creating for a get-together.

It’s no secret that everyone loves bacon… and cheese. And every get-together needs a potato side dish. So why not combine them all? Mom does an excellent job of this. And you can make it on the lighter side using light sour cream and fat free cheese. You can even use turkey bacon as an alternative.

This side dish is super easy and tastes wonderful each time Mom makes it. Try it out at your next BBQ and you’re sure to please your crowd.
