Loaded Potato Casserole

This dish is great when you have a larger group to feed and can be made a couple of days ahead if needed. This week at No Frills, you can pick up 10 lbs of Russet potatoes for $2.97. The recipe calls for baking the potatoes, but you can easily use boiled, mashed potatoes instead, or go really crazy and substitute cauliflower! A lot of the other ingredients are on sale this week as well, such as cheese at Giant Tiger for $3.77, Sour cream at Metro for $2.99 and Bacon, also at Metro for $3.99. Here’s how you do it.

Ingredients:

7 medium potatoes, peeled, baked or boiled

4 oz. cream cheese, softened

2/3 cup sour cream

1/2 cup milk or cream

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 Tbsp Parsley

2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

2 green onions, thinly sliced

10 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

salt & pepper to taste

Toppings:

1 green onion, sliced

2 slices bacon, cooked & crumbled

1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

 

Method:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mash warm baked or boiled potatoes with a potato masher. Add butter, cream cheese and sour cream. Mash while adding milk/cream slowly until a creamy consistency is reached. Stir in remaining ingredients (except toppings) then transfer into a 2 qt casserole dish.

Sprinkle with toppings, then bake for 20-25 until cheese is melted and potatoes are heated through.

 

Serves 10.
