This was ok. I thought it was a lot of work for what was basically a baked potato with lasagna noodles and garlic. It tasted fine, but I probably won't make it again. I will just mix onions and bacon pieces in with mashed potatoes, top it with some cheese and have it all as a side dish. Thanks for the idea though!
This was a great recipe! However next time I will add salt and pepper to my potatos as I cook them because this was really bland until I added the sour cream to my bowl with salt and pepper and mixed it up. Also it didn't say if you should drain the butter and fat off the bacon so I didn't and it was really greasy, I think next time I will drain it off. I def. wont be making it often because it's so fattening, but it was REALLY yummy!!! Thanks for the reipce!
Like many others, I played around with this somewhat to try to make it a bit easier. It's actually a lot of work to make-- thank goodness my husband stepped in to help! I made a huge batch of mashed potatoes (from scratch, probably almost 5 lbs worth, with butter, half&half, garlic powder and a bit of nutmeg) and mixed in a couple of cups of cheddar and the sauteed onions (didn't use the fresh garlic since I'd already used garlic powder). I broke the lasagna noodles in half before cooking, which made them easier to cook and to layer in the pan. Six of the half noodles per layer... noodles on the bottom, a layer of potatoes, some crumbled bacon, noodles, potatoes, bacon, noodles, potatoes, bacon and about a cup of grated colby-cheddar. Baked for about 40 minutes and served with chopped scallions and sour cream. Delish, great comfort food, but definitely something I'll do only occasionally because of the calories!
