Mashed Potato Casserole Toppings

One of my absolute favorite toppings for baked potatoes, and now for this Loaded  Mashed Potato Casserole, is sour cream. I seriously can’t get enough! We made this recipe with FAGE Sour Cream, and I couldn’t get over how good it was. It was seriously the best secret ingredient! By adding FAGE Sour Cream, this recipe was totally elevated to a whole new level of delicious. It’s so rich and creamy, it’s all natural, and made with simple ingredients to feel good about.

How to Make Loaded Mashed Potato Casserole

To make your Loaded Mashed Potato Casserole, prep your mashed potatoes first. Add water and salt to a pot, add peeled and halved potatoes, and boil for 30 minutes until tender. Drain the potatoes. Then, with a hand mixer, mix in the cream, butter, and salt.  Fold in the sour cream, cheese, bacon bits, and garlic. 


 

 

Once your mashed potatoes are ready, spread them into a baking dish and top with additional cheese and bacon. Bake your casserole at 350 degrees for 15 minutes until the cheese is melted. Finish off the casserole with chopped green onions before serving. It’s that easy!
