Cheesy Mashed Potato Casserole

Classic comfort food at its finest, this dish is made with creamy mashed potatoes, sour cream, cream cheese, milk, melted cheddar cheese and spices baked into a casserole dish and topped with bacon, green onions and parsley.

Cheesy mashed potatoes are one of my all time favorite side dishes to make for my family.  We love to have them for dinner, holiday parties, birthdays, graduation, potlucks and for other special occasions.  I’ve been making this recipe for years and to this day, it’s still my number one requested dish to make for family. To make a good cheesy potato casserole, you’ll have to have a good mashed potato recipe that is creamy and full of flavor.  I’ve taken the classic potato bake and have taken it to a whole new level with a few secret ingredients.

Growing up I remember standing on a stool in the kitchen with my mom.  She’d put a little apron on me and let me pour the ingredients in the mixer.  I have fond memories of helping in the kitchen and now that I’ve grown up those are the memories I cherish the most.  I love coming home for the holidays and still helping her.  Cheese Mashed Potatoes are so good that you’ll find my licking the leftover on the beaters during family holidays before dinner starts.  Some things never change and I’m happy  for all the memories I have making dinner and enjoying it with family.  Life is about spending time with your loved ones and this recipe is a lot of fun to make those rescued moments even more enjoyable.

What I love about this recipe is that it’s so easy to make and uses just a few simple ingredients that most people already have in the refrigerator.

Since dinner is all about spending time with family, the kids can help peel potatoes or they can be sliced, boiled and softly peeled after they are soft.

To make this recipe, start by boiling a pot of water on the stove top.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and grease a 9 x 9 baking dish. Place peeled and sliced Tasteful Selections potatoes in pot and boil until soft, about 25 minutes.  Make bacon then chop once cool; set aside.

Place in a bowl fit with a mixer and add milk, cream cheese and sour cream.  Blend on medium high for a few minutes until most lumps are gone.  Add spices to potatoes and mix again for a minute or two.

    How much cream cheese do you use? I couldn’t see it on the ingredients list. Would like to make this, it looks good.

    I love to hear stories of adults that spent time in the kitchen with their moms. I raised 4 sons that all cook as adults because they grew up in the kitchen with me! Cheese and mashed potatoes have to be a perfect pairing! Looks delicious!

    Oh my goodness! This is all the best parts of a loaded potato in one dish. Every bite would be delicious (and no potato skins!)
