Absolutely wonderful potatoes!! I did make a few minor changes though. I never actually have mayo - I only have Miracle Whip Light in the fridge so that's what I used. And taking the advice from some others, I used 1 cup of Miracle Whip Light and 1 cup of light sour cream. I also used Lite Velveeta Cheese & the potatoes still tasted very rich and yummy even using all light ingredients. I stirred the bacon bits in with everything else instead of putting them on top & added some dried chives instead of the chopped onion. I combined some crushed cornflakes and melted butter and sprinkled it on top before baking. For some reason, my kids will eat anything with a crunchy topping! I did bake the dish covered for the first half hour so the cornflakes didn't get too brown. Everyone loved this dish. In fact the kids like to call it Potato Skin Casserole because they said it tastes just like potato skins - but so much easier for me to make!!


These potatoes are okay, but I would recommend the Hash Brown Casserole by Diane also off this site. I like it much better. I used half mayo and half sour cream. The potatoes were heavy, but not greasy. I also used fresh bacon rather than bacon bits. It wasn't bad, but I will go back to my usual recipe. I think it is much better.


This recipe was not only yummy, but very easy to make. I made this for a father's day cookout and it was a hit. I would recommend a few changes: instead of the bottled bacon bits, cook up about 12 pieces of bacon and cut them up in small pieces. Also, I used 1 cup each of mayonnaise / sour cream and 3/4 brick of Velveeta rather than 1lb. One other suggestions, use the southern style hash browns rather than the shredded. It makes mixing a lot easier. Try this recipe with these few changes and you won't be sorry!!!!
