  • Melt processed cheese food in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula, 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Mix potatoes, melted cheese food, mayonnaise, and bacon bits together in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Pour potato mixture into the prepared baking dish; cover dish with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 50 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking until lightly browned on top, about 10 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can fry regular bacon on the stove in a frying pan or skillet until its nice and crispy. Drain the grease and crumble up the cooked bacon to make home-made bacon bits. Using homemade bacon bits enhances the flavor of your potato dish.

The processed cheese food can also be melted in the microwave or in a saucepan.

These were tasty! They are a bit on the thick/rich side so keep that in mind. I did use 2% light Velveeta and light Hellmanns mayo, and that worked very well. Also, I boiled my potatoes whole then peeled and cubed them b/c they hold less water that way, IMO. These do thicken upon standing, so you want to heat them as soon as you can after taking them out of the oven. All in all, the family liked them and I would make them again! Thanks for sharing. :) Read More

I personally added more bacon and used Miracle Whip instead of Mayo. I didn't like how sweet it turned out but my husband loved it! I think adding a half cup of mayo(not miracle whip) and half of sour cream instead of a full cup of mayo would be even better! I'm totally going to try that next time.:) Read More
