How to make mashed potato casserole
To make the mashed potato casserole, first peel, cube and boil potatoes as you normally would when making mashed potatoes. Once the potatoes are tender and cooked through, mash with a potato masher.
Now to add flavour to the potatoes! Mix through some butter, sour cream, cream and milk until well combined. Next, fold through half of your diced and cooked bacon along with half of your grated cheese.
Transfer the mixture to a baking dish and sprinkle with the remaining bacon and grated cheese. Then bake for around 20 minutes or until the casserole begins to turn golden brown, and serve.
