Baked Potato Casserole

A few nights ago I was in the mood for a baked potato, but at the same time I was in the mood for French fries. As much as I wanted a baked potato I didn’t want to have the hassle of the baked potato. No matter what I knew we were going to have some sort of potatoes for dinner because they sounded so good.

I threw this together at the last minute and I must admit it turned out great. The key is making sure that your potatoes get nice and crispy. The browner the better because it add extra flavor. This is something you can you can easily adjust the size based on your needs at the moment.

I think it would also be really great with season salt added to it before baking!

  • 2 pounds potatoes washed
  • ¼ cup bacon bits
  • ¼ cup green onions
  • 1 cup cheese (your choice)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ tsp. Garlic powder
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Slice washed potatoes into ¼ inch rounds then spread out in a 16X20 baking dish.
  3. To the dish add a few tablespoons of olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  4. With clean hands rub the olive oil and spices into the potatoes. The potatoes should be well coated with oil. Add more oil as needed
  5. Bake for 45 minutes rotating the potatoes every 15 minutes to insure they get nice and brown
  6. Once your potatoes are at the desired crispiness remove from oven and add half the cheese, then the bacon and green onions then top with the additional cheese.
  7. Return the pan to the oven and make another 5 minutes
