30-Minute Comfort Food Casserole: Kids & Parents Alike Will Love This Cheesy Bacon & Potato Casserole Recipe

Let’s be real … what pandemic parent has time for elaborate weekday meals? Here's a quick and delicious, belly-filling comfort food casserole made with potatoes, cheese and bacon (need we say more?) to dish up and serve in 30 minutes flat. For an even heartier meal, add diced leftover cooked chicken. Yum!

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes

You’ll need:

  • 12-14 medium russet potatoes, baked until about 2/3 done (still firm to cut)
  • 1 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 3 cups sour cream
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 3 green onions or chives, chopped 

Here’s how to make it: 

  1. Prepare a 13x9-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Quarter the cooked potatoes and place half in the prepared casserole in single layer. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and bacon and cheese. Top with half the sour cream, sliced onions and then the cheeses. Repeat layers. Top with more cheese. 
  3. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until cheeses are melted. Sprinkle with additional sliced onions.
