here are some tips for making the perfect Crack Potatoes:

  1. Choose the right potatoes: We recommend using baby potatoes for this recipe as they are tender and cook quickly. You can use any variety you like, but we prefer waxy potatoes like red or yellow potatoes.
  2. Don’t overcook the potatoes: Be sure to check the potatoes regularly while they are baking to avoid overcooking them. You want them to be tender but not mushy.
  3. Use full-fat mayonnaise and sour cream: This recipe relies on the richness and creaminess of mayonnaise and sour cream, so be sure to use full-fat versions for the best flavor.
  4. Add your favorite toppings: While we love the combination of cheese, green onions, and bacon, feel free to add any toppings you like. Some great options include diced tomatoes, sliced jalapeños, or chopped cilantro.
  5. Serve hot: These potatoes are best served hot and fresh from the oven. If you need to reheat them, we recommend placing them back in the oven or under the broiler for a few minutes.
  6. Store leftovers properly: If you have any leftover Crack Potatoes, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To reheat, simply place them in the oven or microwave until heated through.

With these tips, you’ll be able to make perfect Crack Potatoes every time!
