Cheesy Mashed Potatoes Casserole - this side dish is AMAZING! It's filled with potatoes, cream cheese, sour cream, butter, cheese, bacon and more. It's easy too - definitely a new family favorite!

Have I mentioned my love for potatoes?! The starchy vegetable is my favorite, and it’s probably a favorite of yours too since I haven’t met a person who doesn’t like potatoes. 😉 Ever since I was little, mashed potatoes have been a favorite and is something my mom made at least once or twice a month. Surprisingly, I’ve only made mashed potatoes a handful of time for my own family but I do make several other versions to change things up to where we have them at least once or twice a month as well. A few months ago, I decided to try even another way to make potatoes using a recipe for Cheesy Mashed Potato Casserole.

How did they turn out?? This mashed potato casserole was PHENOMENAL!! In fact, I felt like it was a little easier than regular potatoes and that it was even more flavorful. It’s probably because there was cream cheese, butter, sour cream, more cheese and bacon to go with it. In fact, this pretty much reminded me of Twice Baked Potatoes and although I have a recipe for Twice Baked Potato Casserole that is great, this one is more creamy!!

Can’t go wrong with cheese and bacon on top!!

I also love that this recipe can feed up to 10 or 12. It’s great if you are having company over and like I mentioned before, it’s super easy!!

If you love potatoes as much as me this recipe is a MUST in the monthly rotation. We’ll be in Arizona for Thanksgiving so I’m going to volunteer to make this for Turkey Day. I think these make ahead mashed potatoes will be a hit with the whole family!!

    This dish was excellent!!! Everyone had seconds!! The only modifications I made was to go low fat……low fat sour cream, cream cheese and shredded cheese……I also used uncured bacon. ♡

    This sounds awesome! Do you think it would freeze well?

    do you have to use the sour cream?

      Lil' Luna

      I haven’t tried it without it. The sour cream definitely makes it creamy and gives it a taste, but you could substitute it for something else, if you prefer something different. If you try it another way, let me know what you used or if you just left it out. Thanks!!

    Can you put this together the day before?

      Lil' Luna

      I haven’t put it together that far in advance. The most is the morning of, but I’m sure it would be ok, since it’s in the fridge. Just cover it well! Let me know how it comes out. Thanks!!

        Dianne

        Thanks! Will do! I wanted to take it to a family reunion in a couple of weeks which about a 2 hour drive and is at mid day. Wanted to make it the evening before.
