  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place potatoes into a pot and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook until easily pierced with a fork, about 12 minutes. Drain and pour into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Mix with mayonnaise, processed cheese and onion.
  3. While the potatoes are boiling, fry the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp. Drain and break into large pieces. Place on top of the potatoes.
  4. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, until cheese is browned.

  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Reduced this to serve 6 instead of 16. Used about 3.5 tbs mayo, mozzarella cheese instead of velveeta and cooked it about 30 minutes. It turned out great and the leftovers are yummy, too.

My family loved this recipe. I was looking for a recipe to use up a huge take-home container of french fries that were a bit on the dry side. Like others, I added sour cream, and they were moi...
