Loaded Potato Casserole

I snagged this recipe off of Pinterest but of course altered it. If a recipe calls for “packaged bacon bits”, I am going to ignore that and make real bacon. 🙂



  • 2 (16oz) containers sour cream
  • 4 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1lb bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 2 packages Ranch Dip mix
  • 1 large (28 – 30oz) bag frozen hash brown potatoes, cubed style or shredded
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 400°f.

Grease/spray 9×13 pan

Combine first 4 ingredients well.  Mix in hash browns.



Spread into a 9×13 pan.  Bake for 45-60 minutes, depending on your oven.

The Man loved this. You can also substitute the frozen potatoes for fresh, just make sure you cook them but only lightly, so they don’t become mash when mixing.


Super good the next day too. This didn’t last long in our house!


Can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve posted anything. Good news, spent yesterday trying new recipes from Pinterest – not always the greatest place to find stuff, but at least one was pretty good after I altered it a bit. LOL

Will get those published in the next day or two.  I even remembered to take a picture or two!!
