As I’m sure you can see…this is not on the New Year’s diet. Hey, you need a little treat every now and then. These are our favorite potatoes with a nice juicy steak. My kids fight over the leftovers…if we have any! I’m pretty sure every time I get on Pinterest I see a version of this dish. Here is my family’s version.
Here are some other yummy sides we love with a great steak. You could try our Creamy Corn and Tomato Risotto with Roasted Poblano, Nanny’s Macaroni & Cheese, Sweet Onion & Rice Bake, or how about Old Fashioned Garlic Cheese Grits? A little something for everyone!
- 1 bulb garlic
- drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper
- 5 pounds potatoes
- ½ cup butter, melted
- 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened, cut into pieces
- 1 cup sour cream
- 3 cups (12 ounces) cheddar cheese, shredded, divided
- 10 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled, divided
- 1 bunch green onions, sliced, divided
- 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Cut the top off of the bulb of garlic, exposing the garlic cloves.
- Remove some of the papery outer layers, and place on a square on heavy duty aluminum foil. Drizzle with some olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper.
- Bring the corners of the foil up and twist to seal. (Leave some room, don't wrap too tightly.)

- Remove to cool.
- Meanwhile, peel and dice potatoes.
- Place in a large pot and cover with cold water. Add salt and bring to a boil.
- Simmer the potatoes until tender, about 20 minutes depending on how big your potatoes are.
- Drain and return the cooked potatoes to your pot.
- Mash and add the butter, cream cheese, sour cream, 2 cups cheese, ½ of the bacon, and ½ of the green onions.
- Remove the garlic bulb from the foil, and squeeze the garlic pulp out of the skin into the potatoes. Mix well and add seasoned salt and pepper.
- Transfer to a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish.
- Top with the remaining cheese.
- Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes until warm.
- Remove from the oven and top with the rest of the bacon.
- Return to oven for 5 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and garnish with the remaining green onion.
