  • 6 cups potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 3 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup onion, minced


  1. Start by warming up your oven to 375°F (190°C). Prepare a 9×13-inch baking dish by greasing it lightly, then set it aside.
  2. Bring a generously salted pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the diced potatoes and cook them until they are just tender enough to pierce with a fork, typically about 8-10 minutes. Once done, drain the potatoes thoroughly and set them aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the cooked, diced potatoes with the grated cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, crispy crumbled bacon, minced garlic, and finely chopped onion. Stir the mixture well to ensure even distribution of all the ingredients.Transfer the potato mixture to the prepared baking dish, spreading it out into an even layer.
  4. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the potatoes are heated through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  5. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and slightly crispy.
  6. Once baked to perfection, remove the Mississippi Mud Potatoes from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
  7. Serve hot as a comforting side dish alongside your favorite main course, or enjoy them on their own as a satisfying and flavorful meal.
