What are Mississippi Mud Potatoes, you ask? Well, that’s easy. They’re diced potatoes that are mixed up with a few goodies and baked until they’re tender throughout, crispy on top, and totally surrounded with creamy cheesiness. Why are they called Mississippi Mud Potatoes? Well, that I don’t really have an answer for. But their vague history isn’t something you need to concern yourself with; all you need to know is that they’re the ultimate when it comes to comforting side dishes.

These start with plenty of peeled, diced potatoes – about seven cups – that go into a casserole dish with some grated cheddar cheese, bacon, green onion, and garlic salt. That all gets mixed together with some mayo, which brings everything together and lends plenty of creaminess…

And then it bakes low and slow. They go in at 325°F, so it’s not too low, but it is low enough that the potatoes can hang out for a long while until they get irresistibly tender but still come out with a nice browned topping.
