Super Bowl Taters

I worked in a hospital kitchen for several years and a co-worker and I came up with this recipe when we had to work one Super Bowl Sunday. It went over so well, the staff asked for it all the time!

This hearty potato side dish is sure to feed all your fellow football fans. It's full of the toppings you crave on game day - cheesy and spicy queso, smoky bits of bacon, ranch flavor and crunchy French fried onions. Yum!

Note: If you don't have any pre-cooked potatoes, then use uncooked ones. Bake covered for 45 minutes, uncover and bake for 10 minutes more. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Super Bowl Taters


  1. I like to use potatoes that have been cooked the day before. Slice them into wedges (leave the skins on) and place into a 9x13 greased baking dish.
  2. Sprinkle with dry ranch mix. Dollop cheesy queso dip over potatoes. Sprinkle real bacon bits all over. Layer French onions over the top (about 2/3 of the can).
  3. Place in a 350-degree oven covered with foil for first 15 minutes. Then uncover and continue to bake until bubbly and onions are browned. Serve hot. YUM!
  4. You can add shredded cheddar over top. You could add jalapenos, black olives, whatever you like to make it your own. Even some cooked ground beef or spicy sausage to make it a main dish. It's a winner and will satisfy a big appetite. A real crowd pleaser.
