8 tablespoon (1 stick) butter
1 small bell pepper, sliced thin
1 small onion, sliced thin
Paula Deen’s House Seasoning (to taste)
1/2 cup sour cream
2 cup mashed potatoes
1 1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese
4 medium potatoes, cooked
6 slices of bacon, cooked crisp
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread mashed potatoes evenly on bottom of casserole dish. Layer sour cream evenly over top. (Each time you add a layer, sprinkle on a little House seasoning.) Saute onion and bell pepper in butter; evenly layer over top of sour cream. Next, layer with 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese. Slice potatoes and layer over cheese until top is completely covered with potatoes. Finally top with remaining 1 cup cheese. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and crumble bacon over top.
Leftover mashed potatoes work wonderfully in this recipe.
