Tired of the same old side dish, I whipped up this new family favorite. We can't get enough of these loaded mashed potatoes at our house. Often, I'll prepare this casserole ahead and refrigerate it. Then I bake it just before serving. —Dawn Reuter, Oxford, Wisconsin

Ingredients

  • 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 shredded cheddar cheese blend, divided
  • 1/2 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 3 green onions, sliced

Directions

  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.



Test Kitchen tips
  • Add a little more (or less) milk depending on how thick you like your mashed potatoes.
  • Make these mashed potatoes the day before! These other dishes can be prepped ahead, too!
