Tired of the same old mashed potatoes, I whipped up this new family favorite. We can't get enough of them at our house. Often, I'll prepare this dish ahead and refrigerate it. Then I bake it just before serving.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min.
MAKES:14 servings
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min.
MAKES: 14 servings


  • 5 pounds potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 cups (12 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese blend, divided
  • 1/2 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 3 green onions, sliced


  1. Place potatoes in a Dutch oven and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until tender. Drain and place in a large bowl. Add the sour cream, milk, butter, salt and pepper. Beat on medium-low speed until light and fluffy. Stir in 2 cups cheese, bacon and onions.
  2. Transfer to a greased 3-qt. baking dish. Top with remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted. Yield: 14 servings.

I've made this several times and my husband loves it. I always halve the recipe: 4 medium potatoes, 4 slices of bacon, but 3 green onions, since there is no such thing as too much green onion. :-) Made these again tonight, but discovered at the last minute that the sour cream had gone bad. So I substituted some crumbed feta cheese. Awesome!

Made it for a family get together. Everybody loved it. Yes, I'll make it again for this Thanksgiving. It is a winner.

I love mashed potatoes with any meal and I like the ingredients used in this. I make one similar but only use sour cream and cream cheese. It never dawned on me to make them loaded!
