Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan and crumble. Discard drippings from pan. Add 1 cup onion and garlic to the pan and cook for 5 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Stir in the potatoes, and then cover and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Combine the crumbled bacon, ¼ cup cheese, green onions, sour cream, salt, pepper and soup in a large bowl. Add the potato mixture and toss gently to combine. Spoon mixture into an 11” x 7” baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray and sprinkle with the remaining ¾ cup cheese. Cover with foil coated with nonstick cooking spray. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 350° F. Remove casserole from refrigerator and let stand at room temperature 15 minutes. Bake the casserole, covered, at 350º F for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 30 minutes or until bubbly around edges and the cheese begins to brown.
