Roasted Potato Casserole!

We all love this casserole dish... but no one knows what it should be called. The gang refers to it as Potato Casserole on Steroids... I can't bring myself to call it that ~ but it's good; it's really, really good.

Roasted Potato Casserole

6 Large Baking Potatoes, diced
2 Tbsp Old Bay Seasoning
1 Tbsp Fresh Thyme
1/4 cup Butter, melted
1/4 cup Canola Oil
2 Tbsp Spicy Garlic Oil
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
2 cups Sour Cream
1 cup Caesar Salad Dressing
1/2 pkg of Bacon, cooked and diced
1 cup Gouda, shredded
1 cup Cheddar, shredded
1/2 bunch Green Onion, sliced
3 cups Caesar Croutons, crushed
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
1/4 cup Butter, melted

Preheat your oven to 350, and line a pan with foil. Dice the potatoes and put them into a bowl. Sprinkle them with the Old Bay Seasoning and the Thyme.

Melt butter and mix with oils, pour over potatoes and transfer to lined pan.

Bake for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Once they are nice and brown, remove from oven and allow them to cool a bit.

Mix the soups, sour cream, dressing, cheeses, bacon and onions in a large bowl. Add the cooled potatoes and mix until well coated and creamy looking. Press the mixture into a 9x13" pan.

Mix crushed Croutons in a bowl with Parmesan Cheese and melted Butter. Spread evenly over the potato mixture and cover with foil. Bake for 30 minutes, remove foil and bake for 15 more minutes. Your crust should be nice and crispy brown. 

Let the casserole sit for a few minutes, then dish it up....

Whatever you decide to call this dish... 
Caesar Potato Casserole (my idea)
Samson Casserole (the Husbands idea)
Potato Casserole on Steroids (Timbit and Goobs idea)
Buff Potatoes (Bud's idea)

Enjoy it!
