Overview of mashed potato casserole:

  • first, boil and mash potatoes-you can mash them with a hand masher if you desire or mix them with a mixer.
  • then, add other ingredients-I like to stir my potatoes in-between every ingredient. This ensures the ingredients are being spread throughout.
  • finally, pour the potato mixture into a baking pan and bake-baking will blend the flavors together more

What to serve with garlic mashed russet potatoes:

I prefer my garlic potatoes paired with a meat! Steak, hamburgers, fried chicken, herb chicken, etc just to name a few are my favorites to go with this meal.

Main ingredients for this mashed potato casserole recipe:

  • potatoes-Russets. Yellow or golden potatoes would work as well, cooking time might be different then so be sure to watch out for that.
  • sour cream-I used the squeese kind
  • cream cheese-Philadelphia, I find this creates better texture
  • milk- whole milk
  • butter-stick butter
  • bacon-from the local locker, any bacon would work though
  • cheese-shredded, I shred mine myself

Loaded mashed potatoes variations:

  • add spice-if you want to make these spicy, you can add chopped jalapenos
  • more cream cheese-extra cream cheese will make this creamy potato recipe even creamier
  • extra bacon-this recipe only requires 4 strips of bacon, but adding more strips would give it more of a smoky flavor if that is the flavor you desire.
  • more garlic-I personally believe you can never add too much garlic to a dish. If you think 2 tbsp of garlic is too little, definitely add more.
  • extra cheese-only 2 cups of shredded cheese is required, but you can add more if wanting it more cheesy.

How to store creamy mashed potatoes:

  • fridge-store this side dish recipe in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to one week
  • freezer-I have not tried freezing this potato recipe. If you would like to try it, go for it! Let me know how it goes.
