Cheesy, Bacon-Filled 'Crack' Potatoes

Posted by Julie Ryan Evans on July 10, 2012 at 8:43 AM

Crack PotatoesWhen it comes to summer cooking, I feel like it's all about the side dishes. With the grill cooking up most of the main courses, I feel like I'm being constantly asked to "just bring a side" to a host of barbecues and other summer gatherings. This dish is beyond good and goes well with most anything. It's called Crack Potatoes. Yes, crack, as in highly addictive, will not be able to stop eating them.

From Plain Chicken, these spuds are a cheesy, creamy, bacon-filled, beautiful thing. As you start with a bag of frozen hash browns, they're incredibly easy to whip up too anytime you need a side dish. In fact, they're so good, you may not even need a main course.

Crack Potatoes

2 (16-oz) containers sour cream
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
2 (3-oz) bags real bacon bits
2 packages Ranch Dip mix
1 large (28- to 30-oz) bag frozen hash brown potatoes -- shredded kind
 

Combine first 4 ingredients, then mix in hash browns.

Spread into a 9x13 pan.

Bake at 400 for 45-60 minutes.

 Someone please make these and tell us how they are!  I'm not a huge hash brown or sour cream fan but for some reason these sound really good.

 I made these tonight as a side dish and to be honest they weren't my cup of tea. My kiddos only took their 3 bite requirement, lol.
