Cheesy Bacon Mashed Potato Bake

I make this for every Thanksgiving and Christmas. I don't think you can go wrong with cheese and bacon in any situation.


* 5 medium potatoes
* 5 slices bacon
* 3 cups cheddar cheese (shredded)
* 1 teaspoon black pepper
* 1 tablespoon Season-All salt
* 2 tablespoons butter
* 2 tablespoons ranch dressing


Preheat your oven to 350.

Cook your bacon until extra crispy, crumble and set aside.

Peel and dice your potatoes, place in a large pot of boiling water and boil until soft.

Drain the potatoes and put them in a large bowl, add the ranch dressing, butter, black pepper and season all.

Get a potato masher or an electric mixer and blend until all the lumps are out of the potatoes.

Add the bacon pieces and 1 cup of cheddar cheese. Mix with a spoon until well blended.

Put everything in a casserole dish and top with the remaining 2 cups of cheese.

Bake at 350 until the cheese on top is melted.

And no that is not my ass.


  1. Sounds like some outta this world potatoes.. and please refrain from taking shots of my ass in the future;)

  2. Those potatoes are just crazy! I can't wait to try them!

  3. I had to come check you out! Where can I get some of those "I heart bacon" drawers? :) Too funny!

  4. I make something very similar with leftover mashed potatoes. I don't use the ranch dressing though. What a great idea. These sound great!

  5. I wish I had seen this recipe before I made dinner tonight! I was looking for something a little different! I'll have to give these a try!

  6. Mmm....bacon. I wish that was my rear. I'm afraid I've had too much bacon, though :)
