Wicks Party Potatoes Recipe
Prep Time
15 mins
Cook Time
1 hr 25 mins
Total Time
1 hr 40 mins
Servings: 6 People
  • 1 2lb Bag Frozen Country Shredded Potatoes
  • 1/2 Cup Melted Butter
  • 1 16 Oz Container Sour Cream
  • 1 Can Cream of Chicken Soup or Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1 Medium Red Onion
  • 2 Cups Shredded Cheese (We use Mexican)
  • 2 Tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 1/2 cup Bacon Bits (the crispier the better)
  • Salt & Pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

  2. Slightly thaw potatoes while mixing other ingredients together. (Thawing the potatoes overnight in the fridge cuts down the cooking time and makes them easier to mix.)

  3. In the largest bowl you have mix all the ingredients together then pour into a greased 9×13″ pan and cook for 75 – 90 minutes or until golden brown.

We hope you enjoy making our Wicks Party Potatoes during the holiday season! Let us know on IG if you end up making them. :)

    Loving this recipe! All of your recipes always look amazing. I make a version of these potatoes, very similar but I have never used bacon bits!!!! And I crunch up potato chips on the top!! ❤️

  3. Making this for Christmas this year. I have one question. What do you do with the butter? Is it melted? Do you cut it up in diced pieces? Thanks so much for all you do.

  4. These potatoes are SOOOO good. I added a little Lawry’s season salt to the mixture & then topped with chives after baking. Thanks so much sharing your recipe. Next time I am going to add a packet of Hidden Valley ranch dressing to the mixture. I love to experiment with recipes

    To. Die. For!

    We made the Wicks famous party potatoes over the holiday season and we are addicted forevermore.

    Thank you for sharing this yummy recipe!

  6. I really want to make this but here in the UK we don’t have packaged shredded potatoes.
    Can I just use raw shredded or mashed potatoes instead?
