Soft buttery potatoes loaded with cheese and bacon, this casserole is sure to become a favorite side dish! The best part is it goes with just about anything!  It is at home on your dinner plate loaded with BBQ, great with pork chops, fabulous with a roast.  No matter what you are serving, cheesy potatoes is just the thing to go with it.

We all love the traditional cheesy potato casserole.  It is so creamy and delicious, but sometimes it is nice to switch it up a bit.

These potatoes are just the thing!  MiMi first made these back in 2015.

It had been a little while so we had to have them again.  So when grilled pork chops made the family dinner menu, it was time to break these gems back out!

Rather than hash browns like the traditional cheesy potato casserole, this recipe starts with new potatoes.  Since there are bite sized chunks of potatoes, the flavor really carries through.  But of course, the cheese and bacon are the star of the show!

This batch barely hit the counter before it disappeared.  We were darn close to literally licking the pan clean.

MiMi had been hoping to use the leftovers for breakfast with fried eggs, but she had to come up with another plan.  While that would have been delicious, it would have required a second batch.  Maybe next time!

These would go great with:

Pulled Pork Sliders and cheesy potatoes would make a fabulous hearty meal.  So much pork and bacon goodness!

Hamburger Surprise are always a favorite for our family.  The combination is sure to be popular with your family as well.

In case you need a few more fun side dish ideas, we also love instant pot garlic soy green beans or simple sour cream and chive new potatoes.

Hi Carlee, I do make something similar, but just use bacon and onion. The addition of cheddar cheese takes the recipe up a notch, which means I may not get a look in!

Bacon, onion and potato sounds delicious too! We do love our cheese though ;-) Thank you, Debbie!
