Favorite Fall Recipes – Potato, Cheese and Olive Casserole

Favorite Fall Recipes – Potato, Cheese and Olive Casserole

This year we will be celebrating our 19th Annual Pumpkin Carving Party. Although the guest list and the location have morphed over the years, there are many traditions that have come out of it that are constant. One thing is my dear friend Linda’s Potato, Cheese and Olive Casserole. I am rather ashamed to admit (uh… not really) the couple of times Linda was unable to attend, I rather diplomatically suggested that she should still provide us with her yummy potatoes! So, for the past 19 years, this casserole has been a standby and always disappears quickly! I would like to thank Linda for being such a good sport and for, without fail, feeding the masses, and for sharing this recipe with us. If you have a Favorite Fall Recipe you would like to share with us, send it to weefolkart@yahoo.com. Include a little snippet about the recipe, and if you have a blog, make sure to include a link so we can all stop by!

8 medium potatoes, cooked, peeled and diced
1/2 pound sliced bacon cut in 1″  pieces
1 pound processed American cheese cut into 1″ cubes

  1. You have to give this a try. I’ve been looking on the internet because I lost my mom’s recipe but I found it right here!
    This is a VERY yummy and filling recipe. I’m going to serve it with ham.

    1. I always think of these as our fall potatoe recipe, we are very seasonal with our foods, but you gave me a great idea to make these potatoes the day after Christmas to serve with our leftover ham! Thanks!
