I was having some friends over for the daytona 500 race and my boyfriend was going to fix bbq pork , ribs and wings on the grill. It was my responsibility to handle the side dishes. So I got to thinking and as always the 3 things that always are served is corn on the cobb - baked beans - potato salad. I decided to do something different with potatoes this time and came up with this last minute idea that became a huge hit!
Boil potatoes in water with skins until tender.
Drain water and add 1/2 stick of butter and 1/8 of milk to pan and mix until creamy with mixer. (add more milk if needed)
ADD seasoning to taste along with sour cream (I used sour cream with chives) and mix again.
Spray casserole dish with Pam and take 1/2 the potato mixture and put in bottom of dish. Place 3 to 4 slivers of butter on top of potatoes and Add a layer of cheese and 1/2 the bacon bits. Repeat layer again. Topping off with bacon bits.
Heat oven to 350 and bake for 20 minutes. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream and serve.
