Its month 3 in the crazy cooking challenge and this month is to find the ultimate mashed potato's. My family loves potato's of all form and so it was so fun to search all of the many different ways to make potato's. But I decided to make this loaded mashed potato casserole that I found over at Big Mamas Home Kitchen she has such a fun blog and some great food ideas.
8 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
3/4 to 1 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup sour cream
kosher salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 lb bacon, cooked and crumbled
3 green onions, sliced
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a large casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.
Boil potatoes until fork tender. Mash up with potato masher. Add the sour cream and enough evaporated milk for mashed potato consistency. Use a wire whisk to beat until fluffy. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in 1 cup of the cheddar cheese, 1/2 of the cooked bacon, and 1/2 of the green onions.
Transfer the potatoes to casserole dish and sprinkle with remaining cheddar cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until bubbly and cheese is melted. Remove from oven and top with remaining bacon and green onions.
