Scalloped Crack Potatoes - cheesy Au Gratin potato casserole loaded with cheddar, bacon, and ranch! Everything cooks in the same pan - easy cleanup! Only 5 ingredients! Potatoes, heavy cream, ranch seasoning, cheddar cheese, and bacon. I could make a meal out of just these potatoes. I'm still thinking about them! SO good! An easy side dish that is ready in about an hour!
Do NOT make the ranch dressing. You are only using the seasoning packet.
Can Scalloped Crack Potatoes be made in advance? Yes! You can slice the potatoes and pour the heavy cream and ranch mix over them and refrigerate the dish overnight. You may need to add a few minutes to the baking time if baking straight from the refrigerator.
Can Scalloped Crack Potatoes be frozen? Yes! Bake the potatoes up until the final 15 minutes and remove them from the oven. Let the casserole dish cool completely. Cover and freeze. To reheat, simply thaw and finish the cooking until the potatoes are tender again.
This makes a lot of potatoes. Feel free to cut the recipe in half. The baking time would stay the same.
Are Scalloped Crack Potatoes gluten-free? Yes! These potatoes are gluten-free.
