Ingredients

Cheese

Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Aged Cheddar can be used in this recipe.

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Clean and pierce potatoes. Transfer to a large bowl; drizzle with oil. Season with 2 teaspoons salt. Toss to coat. Place potatoes on an ungreased 15 x 10-inch baking pan. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until just tender, stirring occasionally. Cool on a wire rack. When cool enough to handle, quarter potatoes. Return to the same bowl.
  3. Meanwhile, fry bacon in a large skillet until crisp. Remove bacon to a paper towel to drain. Set aside a 1/3 cup bacon.
  4. Combine the sour cream, green onions, cheddar and remaining bacon in a bowl. Season with pepper and remaining salt. Pour over potatoes; gently toss to coat. Sprinkle with reserved bacon. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for 1 hour to blend flavors. Refrigerate leftovers.
