Wow! This recipe is from Bon Apetit and this casserole pairs well with pork loin or a roasted chicken. Heck, the casserole is a meal in itself. The flavor of bacon and gouda are wonderful together. be sure and use applewood bacon and smoked gouda for the best combination.

- 3 green onions
- 3 lbs russet potatoes
- 3⁄4 cup sour cream
- 1⁄2 cup whole milk
- 1⁄4 cup butter

- Using a potato masher, mash until almost smooth.
- Add 1 1/2 C shredded gouda cheese and 1 C bacon and onions.

Awesome! I followed directions to a T other than reducing the number of servings for 2 of us. I love smoked gouda and this was a great way to incorporate it into a meal - rather than my usual cheese and crackers appy. lol. Thanks so much for sharing this total keeper. Made for your win in the Football Pool. Congrats again!
My mom was making Easy Chicken Dressing Bake for a family get-together. DH and I brought this casserole to go as a side. It was rich and delicious, everyone loved it, and it paired well with the chicken. We received many compliments. My sister said it was her favorite side dish that I have made to date and my uncle said he could have just ate a pan of the potatoes for dinner. Thanks for a hit. I am sure I will be asked to bring this to dinner parties in the future!
Yum - these are terrific potatoes! I left out the green onions, otherwise made as specified. The rich gouda cheese really makes this dish. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for the Top Favorites of 2009 event
