Potatoes are a staple at home. We love mashed or loaded potatoes, and they have been my go-to, especially on busy days. The newest on my list is this Mississippi Mud Potatoes. Everything with bacon is a must! The kids went crazy over these potatoes, and the bacon just makes everything right.


1 (1 pound) package turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled

2 c. cheddar cheese, grated

1 c. mayonnaise

6-7 c. potatoes, peeled and diced

1/2 c. green onions, thinly sliced

1 tsp garlic salt

How to make Mississippi Mud Potatoes

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 325 degrees.

Step 2: In a baking dish, place the potatoes, garlic salt, green onions, bacon, and cheddar cheese. Mix well.

Step 3: Add the mayonnaise and gently stir until everything has neatly coated.

Step 4: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 90 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and the top is golden brown.

Step 5: Remove from the oven when done and serve the Mississippi Mud Potatoes as a main dish or side. Enjoy!


For this recipe, you can also use crumbled regular bacon.

The potatoes are done once they are tender and the cheese is properly melted on top with a nice brown color.

Feel free to use more mayonnaise if you prefer a mayonnaise-tasting potato or add less.

You can swap mayonnaise with milk if you prefer creamier potatoes.
