This recipe was given to me by a friend. And it was the one that won me my "Way More Homemade" name.
4 baking potatoes
1 pound cheddar cheese (grated)
1 cup milk
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
16 ounces sour cream
2-4 slices of bacon (cooked and crumbled)
You will also need:
9 x 13 baking dish
Peel and boil the potatoes whole until just tender (you do NOT want them falling apart). Remove from water and let cool until very firm (preferably overnight).
Once cool, grate the potatoes into a large bowl (either by hand or a little at a time in a food processor).
Combine cheese, milk and butter in a large saucepan and melt over medium heat, stirring constantly. As soon as it's all melted, combine with potatoes and pour into casserole dish. Top with sour cream and bake at 375 F for 35 - 40 minutes. Remove from oven and top with cooked & crumbled bacon.
