Stouffers Cheddar Potato Bake RecipeStouffers Cheddar Potato Bake RecipeHave you ever had a meal at a restaurant, someone’s house, or even a frozen dinner that you wanted to try to make yourself?  I’ve long thought I could recreate the Stouffer’s Cheddar and Bacon Potato Bake at home without having to buy it.  After reading the ingredients on the box, I decided that there was nothing extraordinary in the Stouffer’s recipe, just normal stuff that I always have in stock around my house.  Of course, I cooked mine in a slow cooker, but it could be cooked in the oven as well.  Make a whole slow cooker full for about the price of a serving for two.  Stouffer’s can freeze theirs, so why can’t I?  Make a huge batch and freeze it up in containers the perfect size for your family.  Prep once and feed forever!  😉

    I would love it if you could update this cheddar and bacon potato bake recipe (like Stouffer’s) to use products that have not been discontinued. I would really like to try this!

    Thank you!

    • Without making it myself, but studying the label of the original can (found online), I suggest the following: 1/2 jar of Bertolli (my favorite), 1/2 package of Cream Cheese, 1 can of Campbells Cheddar Cheese Soup (add milk for desired consistency after combining other ingredients.)

      For the Kraft Cheddar Jack & Bacon package try: About 1/2 to 3/4 cup panko crumbs, breadcrumbs, or cornflake crumbs (I use cornflake for lower wheat content), 1 cup shredded Colby Jack, 2 Tbsp. REAL Bacon Bits, and 1/4 tsp smoked paprika. I can get by without the paprika. Of course, since you’re making your own, you can use as much or as little as you like. I would use a lot more bacon because I love bacon and would probably skip the crumb topping. 😉

      I hope these exchanges help. Please let me know if you try it out and let me know what you think. 😀

  1. […] I love bacon and no backyard BBQ is complete to me without some so why not combine bacon and potatoes into a Cheddar Bacon Potato Bake. […]
