Recipe: Loaded Cheesy Potatoes Casserole

Recipe For my Loaded Cheesy Potatoes Casserole

For this you will need:
8 Potatoes
1/2 Cup Evaporated Milk (this comes in a can)
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 bag of Shredded Cheddar Cheese (you can use whatever cheese you want this is my favorite)
Crumbled up bacon (judge how much you want, I normally do 4 strips for 8 potatoes)
1/2  cup sour cream
2 tablespoons of chives

Directions:
-Preheat the oven to 350
-Peel and slice your potatoes, put them into a pot of water bring them to a boil.  You should be able to get a fork easily through when they are done.
-When your potatoes are cooking make your bacon and crumble it.  I normally let it cool a bit and then crumble it in paper towel this way it also takes out the extra grease.

-Now that your potatoes are done put them in a blender or hand held mixer whatever you use and make them look like mash potatoes :). 
-When they are nice and creamy add all of you liquid ingredients and blend some more. 
-When this is good and blended add the rest.
(For cheese you can judge yourself how much you want to use, the same with the bacon.
I always save some cheese and bacon so I can put that on top at the end.)

-Okay now everything is blended, this is the part where you put it into a casserole dish or a glass pan whatever you want to call it.  (I normally taste at this point ;)!!!)
-I add my set aside bacon and cheese now to the top.  You don't have to do this I just like too.
-Put in the oven and wait for the top layer of cheese to be melted then they are done :)  The oven doesn't really cook anything it just melts your cheese for you so there is no set time on how long it should stay in.


You can use these ingredient to make twice baked potatoes too.  The cooking technique is different for twice baked potatoes though.


I hope you like and get the chance to enjoy this recipe :)
