By: Lindsay from normalcooking.com
This potato casserole recipe is one of our very favorites, because it gives you the same great flavor of baked potatoes, but in a dish that allows you to easily serve up to 14 people. Great for the holidays!
2.5 - 3 pounds medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
1 cup evaporated low fat milk
1/2 cup light sour cream
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cups (8-ounce package) shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled, divided (blogger used 8 slices)
