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


  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Pierce potatoes with a fork. Combine potatoes and olive oil on an ungreased 15 x 10-inch baking pan. Season potatoes with salt; toss to coat. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until just tender, stirring occasionally. Cool on a wire rack. When cool enough to handle, quarter potatoes. Transfer potatoes to a large bowl.
  3. Meanwhile, fry bacon in a large skillet until crisp. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain. Set aside 1/3 cup bacon.
  4. Combine the cheddar, sour cream, green onions and remaining bacon in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour over potatoes; gently toss to coat. Sprinkle with reserved bacon. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for 1 hour to blend flavors.
