When there's no gravy with the meat, this dish is fabulous to serve in place of regular mashed potatoes. I make it often to take to picnics and church socials. My husband even made it for his family's reunion one year when I couldn't go! —Cindy Stith, Wickliffe, Kentucky

Ingredients

  • 9 large potatoes (about 4 pounds), peeled and cubed
  • 1 pound carrots, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 8 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. In a soup kettle or Dutch oven, cook the potatoes and carrots in boiling salted water until tender; drain. Place in a bowl; mash and set aside.
  2. In a skillet, saute onions in butter until tender. Add to potato mixture. Add sour cream, salt and pepper; mix until blended.
  3. Transfer to a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350° until heated through, 30-40 minutes.
