Our Crack Potato Casserole is one of our all-time favorite side dishes. It is so simple and tastes incredible! The recipe was created by accident. We forgot to take our Crack Dip to the tailgate and I ended up making a potato casserole with the dip. It is one of our favorite recipes. I love happy accidents!!
This recipe is an updated version of the original recipe. We really think these are THE ULTIMATE Cracked Out Potatoes!! Cheddar, Bacon, Ranch, cream of chicken, sour cream and hash browns. CRAZY good! They are so creamy and full of AMAZING flavor!! I could seriously make a meal out of just these potatoes. They are my absolute favorite!!!
This makes a lot of potatoes. I usually split the recipe between 3 or 4 small foil pans and freeze the extra pans for later. I actually have 2 pans of this potato casserole in the freezer right now! To bake the frozen potatoes, I let the pan thaw in the refrigerator all day and then bake them. You can bake them frozen, you will just need to add more time to the cooking time. I might cover them for a little while also if putting the pan in the oven completely frozen.
