Texas Baked Potato Casserole
By Audra LeNormand sslady77575
We've had this at our Family Reunion for years! It's always been a hit with everyone. I always bake the potatoes a day or two before and refrigerate.It makes cooking time very short!
1 - 32 oz
green onions, sliced
green chilies,drained & chopped
cheddar cheese, shredded
salt and pepper, to taste
1Bake potatoes and refrigerate the night before. There easy to handle when you go to slice them.
2Mix ranch dressing, green chilies & sour cream the night before. It gives it time to marry the flavors. But not necessary.
3Also go ahead and fry the bacon and crumble it. Stick in the refrigerate over night.
4Also slice the green onions and put in refrigerator.
5The more you do the night before the easier it is the day of the BBQ or party! It's easy peasy!
6Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
7Slice potatoes with a mandolin. That way potatoes warm evenly. Use a casserole dish 9X13 or larger if you have one. Spray with PAM or what ever you like or even butter it. You don't want it to stick.
8Put a layer of potatoes,butter, sour cream then cheese. Till the last layer that's when you use the bacon. The green onions go on after it comes out of oven. Sometimes I just sit aside the green onions in a bowl and let them help them selves as some don't like onions at all! Enjoy!
9Bake for 35-45 minutes

This sounds like it is very good, and I will likely try it. PLEASE, PLEASE be VERY, VERY careful using a mandolin. I was using mine a few days age, my thumb slipped off the hand guard, and I almost cut the end of my thumb off. If you are not used to using a mandolin, you might want to use a chef's or butcher knife instead of the mandolin.
