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!
