  • Place potatoes into a pot and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook until easily pierced with a fork, about 12 minutes. Drain and pour into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Mix with mayonnaise, processed cheese and onion.

  • While the potatoes are boiling, fry the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp. Drain and break into large pieces. Place on top of the potatoes.

  • Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, until cheese is browned.

Ironically I came on here to sumbit almost this exact recipe - and I am also from Indiana?! I just had these for the first time this past Sunday at a pitch in. They were the BEST potatoes I've EVER had (although I had been drinking). They were gone in a flash and had a much more complex flavor than you would think from the ingredients. My version uses a bit less Mayo (we used Miracle Whip) and we put a can of chopped black olives over the top. YOU HAVE TO MAKE THIS! Read More

Sorry I just didn't think this was anything that great. It was alright but nothing to rave about. Maybe I should have used cheddar and added sour cream as someone suggested. Read More

If I could give TEN stars to this I would. I did add about 1/2 cup of sour cream before baking. Everyone raved about these. My friend and her husband insisted on getting the recipe. Will definitely be making these again (and again and again)!!! Read More

I used canned potatoes instead of baked and sharp cheese instead of alternative. It is wonderful and quick! My family loved it and it tastes like it took a long time! Read More

I am asked to make this recipe for every picnic and party that I go to. I usually have to make it at least 10 times each summer! I typically double the recipe because so many people love it. I skimp a little on the mayo add some dijon mustard and I also add some of the bacon drippings to it. Unhealthy I know but good! Read More

This was one of the best recipes I've used from this site. Put two fried eggs on top with some toast on the side and you have the perfect breakfast or serve it alone for an awsome side dish. Read More

My family loved this recipe. I was looking for a recipe to use up a huge take-home container of french fries that were a bit on the dry side. Like others I added sour cream and they were moist and delicious. Read More
