Easy and Quick Cheese-Lover's Potato Bake

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz

Using thawed hash bowns makes this an easy recipe that takes minutes to put together, but you may use cooked cold cubed potatoes in place of hash browns ;-) lower-fat sour cream and mayonnaise can be used.

Yes, this is definitely dry. I stirred in at least 2 cups of milk to moisten it up a little, and it was still "sticky" as my oldest daughter put it. However, she said she would give it more stars than me - she gave it 5 stars and said it was delicious. My youngest daughter said I should give it 5 stars also and called it terrific. I only used about 1/3 of the bacon bits and mixed them all in before baking. I cooked the onion a little bit before adding it to the mixture also - I always do to avoid crunchies.
