Ingredients

  • 3 lbs russet potatoes (washed, peeled, and quartered)
  • 3 tablespoon salt (to taste)
  • 2 ¼ cups milk
  • 1 cup butter (2 portions - ¾ cup & ¼ cup - cut into 1 tablespoon pats)
  • 1 cup sour cream (room temperature)
  • 1 ⅔ cup cheddar cheese (shredded, divided into separate portions)

  • ½ cup plain breadcrumbs
  • ½ tablespoon garlic salt

Instructions

  • In a large pot, add in your quartered potatoes and cover them with 1 to 2 inches of cold water and then season generously with salt. Bring the water to a boil and cook the potatoes until they can easily be pierced with a fork, about 20-25 minutes. Once cooked, drain the potatoes.

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and lightly spray a 2-quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

  • Add your milk to a small saucepan and bring it to a boil (*see note).

  • Meanwhile, while you are waiting for your cream to boil, press your potatoes through a potato ricer (*see note).

  • Immediately mix in the hot scalded milk and butter in small increments until well incorporated. Then, add in the sour cream, 1 cup of shredded cheddar, cream cheese, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix until all of the ingredients are well distributed.

  • Transfer the mashed potatoes to the prepared baking dish and spread them out to make an even layer.

  • Melt the second portion of butter (¼ cup, or 4 tablespoon pats) and mix with breadcrumbs and garlic salt seasoning until the breadcrumbs are evenly coated. Spread in an even layer over the assembled mashed potato casserole.

  • Bake at 350°F (175°C) for 20-25 minutes or until the topping is golden and the potatoes are beginning to bubble around the edges of your baking dish. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.

Notes

  • You can peel your potatoes or leave the peel on. However, it is easier to use your potato ricer if they are peeled.
  • Make sure to always salt your water. A good rule of thumb is 1 tablespoon of salt per pound of potatoes.
  • If you want to learn more about scalding your milk, check out my post about scalding milk for mashed potatoes!
  • You should always avoid putting potatoes into a food processor or blender. This will result in gluey potatoes.
  • This recipe is perfect for using up any leftover potatoes or mashed potatoes!
  • To store: Once completely cool, keep your casserole in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • To freeze: Freeze your potatoes in single-size portions for up to 2 months. Check out my guide on freezing mashed potatoes.
  • To reheat: Reheat any leftovers either in the oven or in small bursts in the microwave. To learn more, check out the best methods for reheating mashed potatoes.
