Mashed Potato Casserole

August 28, 2012


Mashed potatoes is not something we eat alot of around here. My kids are not big fans of them. Weird, right? I thought all kids loved mashed potatoes.  Of course, nothing is the norm when it comes to my children's eating habits.  

This was a bigger hit than our regular, plain mashed potatoes though.  I will say it again..bacon and cheese, makes everything a bit better. 

This casserole is very creamy, cheesy and would make a great side dish or you could serve as your main course.  You could also put it together, cover it and put in the fridge.  

Then, when you are ready, uncover and bake. It's a great dish to have for a holiday or to bring to a potluck.

  6. Mmm. As a kid I loved mashed potatoes but don't eat them as often now. This version would change my mind, though. :)

  12. I was laughing when I saw this today because we had this a few nights ago...just one of mom's "experiments" gone right. We wanted baked potatoes, but all we had were a few small potatoes and none good for baking. So, I just made mashed potatoes and added in some "baked potatoe" ingredients and stuck it in the oven. Huge success :)
