My recipe for Cowboy Casserole is my go-to recipe for carry ins, get togethers, holidays, and any other excuse I can come up with to make it. It is so darn good… its good hot, cold, and even better the next day! I know this is the world’s worst picture… but it is soooo good. Feel free to buy generic or “off-brand” potatoes to make this… it cooks up deliciously. If you are taking it for a carry-in, make the potatoes on the stove, stir in all the cheese and the chives, then throw it in your crock pot on low. This is a perfect side for Thanksgiving too!
Prep Time 5 minutes

Total Time 35 minutes
- 2-3 boxes Au Gratin potatoes
- Ingredients needed for Au Gratin potatoes butter, milk, water, etc

- 1 package bacon pieces not Bacon-bits
- 1 package shredded cheese
- Salt to taste
- Black pepper to taste
- 2 Tablespoonse dried chives
Cook the Au Gratin potatoes per the box directions.
After the potatoes are tender, and before the sauce thickens too much, add the drained corn, bacon pieces (watch for that little freshness packet, I learned that the hard way) and half the shredded cheese.
Stir until well blended and then add your salt, pepper, and 1 Tbs chives.
Spoon into a spray-oiled 13 x 9 dish.
Top with remaining cheese and remaining chives and bake at 350 degrees F until the cheese melts and begins to get bubbly, about 10 minutes.
Serve hot. Serve cold. It's up to you.
