Mississippi Mud Potatoes with Cheddar

What exactly are Mississippi Mud Potatoes? That is simple. They’re chopped potatoes mixed with a few other ingredients and cooked till tender throughout, crispy on top, and completely enveloped with creamy cheesiness. What is the origin of the name Mississippi Mud Potatoes? I’m afraid I don’t have an answer for that. But you don’t need to be concerned about their hazy history; all you need to know is that they’re the ultimate in soothing side dishes.
About seven cups of peeled, diced potatoes are placed in a casserole dish with shredded cheddar cheese, bacon, green onion, and garlic salt. All of this is combined with mayo, which ties everything together and adds plenty of richness…
Then it bakes slowly and slowly. They start at 325°F, which isn’t too low, but it’s low enough that the potatoes can hang around for a long time till they’re irresistibly delicate while still having a wonderful browned coating.
