Michael’s Favorite Potato Casserole

on 11/02/2011

When you no longer need a recipe to make a dish, it’s a staple.  This is a staple in our household.  True story: Michael and his family came into town two days before our wedding.  That first night, he and one of his groomsmen, Dale, came to our house, had supper and the three of us went to the ring bearer, Keith’s, softball game.  My poor Mama.  I don’t know how many times we kids pulled a “Can so-and-so come over/stay for dinner/supper?”  This is one of those times and she had just happened to make this Potato Casserole.  If Michael had any second thoughts about getting married, this dish wiped them away.  Ask him to list his top 5 favorite foods and this is one of them.  Very simple but very good.  It’s a keeper!.

Potato Casserole

8 medium potatoes

1/2 cup chopped onion

1 pound American cheese or Velveeta, cubed

1 cup mayonnaise

1/2 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled

3/4 cup sliced black olives (i skip this and it’s just as fine without)

Salt and pepper, to taste

Peel potatoes.  Either dice and boil in water until tender or boil whole and dice after cooking (don’t let them get too soft.)

Mix potatoes with onion, mayo, cheese, and seasonings.  Pour into a greased 9 x 13″ casserole dish.  Sprinkle bacon pieces and olives on top.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until heated through.
