How To Become The Most Popular Person At Your Next Potluck

This recipe is definitely perfect for potlucks. Everyone will fall in love with this and they will gather around your dish the moment you put it on the table. It will be gone in minutes! Serve this with salad or bread and it’s a complete meal! I definitely want to eat this right after it comes out of the oven, but I swear this also tastes great after it has cooled down a bit. Our friend over at has this to say about this recipe:

“This is a dish my family and friends ask me to bring to potluck/cook-outs! NEVER any left to bring home! (my sister brings a bowl to take what MIGHT be left) Taste great hot out of the oven or “room temperature”.”

I love the texture of newly baked food. For me, its flavor is at its best if it’s just newly cooked. However you want to eat this though, you’ll still enjoy it.



8 potatoes, cubed (half peeled or half with skin)

2 teaspoons Morton salt

6 slices Hormel bacon, diced & crisp cooked

6 green onions

2 cups Sargento cheddar cheese, shredded

16 ounces Daisy sour cream

1⁄4 teaspoon McCormick pepper

1 cup Miracle Whip or 1 cup mayonnaise



Cube and boil potatoes with salt.


Crumble bacon and slice onions (including tops).

Combine sour cream, pepper and Miracle Whip.

Add to potatoes.

Add bacon, onions and cheese (reserve some of each for top).

Mix with potatoes.

Pour into baking dish.

Top with reserved cheese, onions, and bacon.

Bake 350 for 10-15 minutes (until cheese melts).



Quick Tip: You can use the lite version of the ingredients.

Thanks again to for this amazing recipe.



I have used hashbrowns and it is not as good. In fact, I boil 7 large brown potatoes and when cooked , I shred them. I use sour cream and a can of cream of chicken soup in my recipe, it is the best. Oh yeah lots of shredded cheddar cheese and green onions.

Depends on what you and your family like. They both work. Miracle whip just has more of a sweet flavor because of its sugar content

helliman’s mayonaisse. A friend who did not like potato salad (made with Miracle whip) loved my basic potato salad made with Hellman’s. And I use white pepper.

I use Marzetti’s Blue Cheese Dressing, not Mayonnaise. I sprinkle a little Blue Cheese Crumbles on top with the bacon, cheese & green onion too. Delicioso!

looks like hash brown casserole my daughter makes and it always disappearing fast at our family meals do she started doubleing the recipe but still disappears

It would be more helpful to state how many POUNDS of potatoes are needed for this recipe. Since potatoes are varied in size, “8 potatoes” really tells us nothing.

I Like the cauliflower idea.With all that cheese I would add another couple of veggies
& serve with a relish tray; that has pickled beets pickled okra celery black olives.

I saw a recipe very similar to this one earlier today….about the only thing different was the size of the potatoes I’m a potato salad nut. This sounds soooo good…….for the past few years I’ve been experimenting with the other veggies, and really like them. I’m going to try this soon.

Do you have a printer, Donna? If so, then you most definitely can print our recipes by highlighting the portion of the recipe you’d like to print.

You sure don`t make it easy to print plus there is no name for the recipe and has a blue million advertizing in between which credits wasteful spaces in between print, why can`t you put a small area at bottom with title and recipe and a print area?

Good grief, just call it what you want….be creative and stop complaining. At least she gave you a FREE receipe. Now, say, “thank you”, and scroll on..
Good day and Merry Christmas!

This sounds delicious. I will be making it and I’m positive there won’t be any left.

Thank you so much for sharing. I’m a cook and I had no problems figuring out the recipe.

Be blessed

I have been making the same recipe since my MIL taught me years ago. Easy peasy, 1 lg bag of frozen hash browns ( defrosted cooks up nicer ) recently found some hash browns made with mash potatoes, have even used tater tots cut into smaller pieces. 2 cans cream of chicken soup, 1 bunch of green onions, white and green cut ( my daughter uses 1 can of mild green chilis ) 1 stick of butter melted, 8 oz. sour cream, 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese ( I use mild, daughter uses sharp ) mix all together, save some cheese to put on top.Pour into casserole dish, (at this point my daughter adds cooked shredded chicken, friends have also used sausage links, ham, whatever they have ) Cook at 350 for 45 mins, if potatoes are frozen, cook longer. yum. always a pot luck favorite at work!
