Cheesy Mashed Potato Casserole

Cheesy Mashed Potato Casserole - layers of mashed potatoes and cheese and topped with bacon - perfect for dinner and holiday meals!

It’s no secret that our family loves potatoes. That would be easy to confirm if you just searched “potato” here on the site and saw the dozens of recipes that showed up. 😉 We also like to try out new potato recipes so we can share out favorites with all of you. Today’s recipe for Cheesy Mashed Potato Casserole happens to be a new favorite and one I think you will enjoy too. It’s a casserole dish and is baked in the oven, but the best part (other than the bacon and cheese on top) is a layer of cheese in the middle of the potatoes. Yes – you heard me right. You layer potatoes in your baking dish, then add a layer of cheese and top it off with even more potatoes. You can see from the picture above all the cheesy goodness which makes this recipe a winner in our books!

With the holidays fast approaching, we love to have yummy potato recipes for Thanksgiving AND Christmas, and I know many of you do too. In the past, we’ve always had Mashed Potatoes, but over the years we’ve tried other recipes like our Twice Baked Potato Casserole or our Parmesan Sweet Potatoes. This year, we will be making these Cheesy Stuffed Mashed Potatoes again because they were simple and so delicious. We’re hoping you give them a try and let us know what you think as well. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do. 😀
