Mississippi Mud Potatoes

When it comes to potatoes, I typically am pretty boring. I love the idea of trying new versions, however, rarely have the time to make them. I usually just stick to mashed or loaded and call it good. When I came across this recipe from Mama Plus One, I was instantly intrigued. Not only did the potatoes look amazing, but it really did not look too hard. I had grabbed a bag from the store and knew I had to try them.

My husband grilled us some steaks and cheesy stuffed jalapenos while I had these cooking. The house smelled amazing and dinner was a success! The kids even went crazy over the potatoes. I think it must be due to the bacon…..bacon makes everything better, right??

Enjoy!!

Hi Kristen…..these look excellent. Unfortunately way to many carbs for me, so I’m going to low carb it and try it with cauliflower. I may add a potato or two for texture.
BTW….Have you had the drawing for the bear claws yet?

I’m so happy that you tried these out! Your photos look great.

Also, the bacon? It’s my favorite part. :) Happy Friday!

SWEET!!! I have to make something for a potluck after church on Sunday and I’m making this!!! I’ll make it all up at home Saturday night and pop it in the oven at church so it can bake during the service! Thank you and Jenni for sharing this with us!!

I think this dish could become a high end dish when we switch to cauliflower at 7.50 a head these days. :)

I use frozen O’Brien potatoes but had not thought about putting bacon in them!!! I’ve been making these for years, got the recipe from a church cookbook. The time is about the same too. 350* for 1hr or till your potatoes are done. Best to thaw the potatoes first but I do make them frozen too!!!!

You can boil the potatoes in their “jackets” in other words with the skins on ahead! Then peeled and dice and only need about 30 minutes to cook! Just an fyi! They are delicious!

Do the potatoes still taste yummy if you don’t have any bacon?

How many people does this feed?Also I have a very similar recipe that uses cauliflower instead,only you do half mayo/half sour cream mixture and everyone goes crazy over it.No one can believe it is a vegetable dish.Its called “Loaded Cauliflower”.

Can you leave peel on? I like to use white potatoes, they have a softer skin
