Time to make these cheesy bacon potatoes in the oven:
First, start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.
Second, wash and peel all of the russet potatoes. After that is done, cut all of them into small 1 inch sized pieces.
Then, place the cut-up potatoes into a large pot and add in enough cold water to cover the potatoes by about 2 inches. Turn the burner on to medium-high heat and bring the water to a boil.
When the water reaches a boil, reduce the heat and let the potatoes simmer. You will cook the potatoes until they are tender and can be easily pierced with a pairing knife. This should take about 20 minutes.
After your potatoes are done cooking, pour the potatoes into a colander to drain the water and return the potatoes to the large pan and cover them with a lid.
Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat and add in the bacon strips and cook them until they are crisp and brown. Try and turn them only once in the process.
Once the bacon is done, remove them from the pan and place the bacon on paper towels to let them drain and cool down.
After the bacon has cooled down crumble it into small pieces.
Now, with the drained potatoes in the large pan, add in the cream cheese, butter, and sour cream and beat everything together with a hand mixer until they are well combined and smooth.
After that, add in the green onions, 2 cups of cheddar cheese, half of the crumbled bacon, salt, and pepper. Finally, use a large spoon or spatula, stir everything together until they are completely combined.
Next, transfer the mashed potatoes to the greased 9×13 inch baking pan and top it with the remaining ½ cup of cheddar cheese.
Next, place the paned mashed potatoes into the oven and bake it until the top is slightly golden brown and the potatoes have been heated all the way through. This should take about 30 minutes.
After it’s done cooking, remove it from the oven and garnish it with the leftover bacon crumbles and serve it!
