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


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Place the potato mixture into a casserole dish that's been coated with non-stick cooking spray.
  4. Sprinkle the additional 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese on top.
  5. Bake in a preheated 385 degree oven for 20 minutes or until hot and the cheese is bubbly.

  4. My kids would love this too! When my father in law was alive, he would cook Thanksgiving dinner and he would put bacon in everything and it became a tradition. This was our first Thanksgiving without him and my oldest son requested bacon in everything. LOL
