Easy Cheesy Potato Casserole Recipe from No Diets Allowed

I love potato casserole recipes. One of my favorite dishes is my sister-in-law’s cheesy potato recipe, it combines both sweet potato and white potatoes. She brings it every year to Thanksgiving and you better believe I load my plate up! I’ve also had a sweet potato casserole with kale, heavy cream and parmesan in it. Super good and also a personal favorite! My friend who makes it always makes amazing food so it’s no surprise I loved that casserole.

  • 6 large potatoes washed, boiled until soft, skin removed, and sliced into 1/4 inch slices
  • 1 (32 ounces) sour cream or Greek plain yogurt
  • 1 (10.5 ounce) can Cream of Chicken condensed soup
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar or Colby Jack cheese
  • 10 strips bacon or turkey bacon baked until crispy and chopped into small pieces
  • 3 stalks green onion washed, ends removed, and thinly sliced.


  1. Thoroughly wash and scrub potatoes.  Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to boil over high heat.  Reduce heat and allow potatoes to simmer for 30 to 45 minutes until you can easily insert and remove a fork.  Drain potatoes and allow to completely cool.  Peel off skin and slice into 1/4 slices. 

  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  

  3. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together sour cream, soup, cheese, bacon, and green onions.

  4. In a 9x13 baking dish, spread 1 cup of mixture on the bottom of the dish until bottom is evenly covered.  In a single layer, place potato slices over the bottom layer of cheese mixture.  Scoop one half of remaining cheese mixture over potato slices and spread until evenly covered.  Repeat steps once more (potato slices and then remaining cheese mixture).  Bake uncovered for 35 to 45 minutes until casserole is bubbling.  Remove, serve, and enjoy!
