Today I am finally sharing with you my son's favorite way to eat mashed potatoes. Well, it's the ONLY way he'll mashed potatoes. But who can blame him when they're loaded with cheese and bacon? It's an easy recipe to take ordinary mashed potatoes to the next level of deliciousness.
Mashed Potato Casserole
6 potatoes, washed, peeled and cubed
1/4 cup butter; melted
1 cup sour cream
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
1/4 cup milk
Additional shredded cheddar cheese; about 1/2 cup
Place the potatoes in a pot and cover with water; bring to a boil.
Cook until fork tender; about 20 minutes.
Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot.
Using a potato masher, mash the potatoes. It's okay to have lumps.
Add the melted butter, sour cream, milk, cheddar cheese and bacon.
Stir until well combined.
Place the potato mixture into a casserole dish that's been coated with non-stick cooking spray.
Sprinkle the additional 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese on top.
Bake in a preheated 385 degree oven for 20 minutes or until hot and the cheese is bubbly.
