Loaded Mashed Potato Casserole

So those of you that know me should know that if I'm posting a recipe, it's gotta be good. And I promise you - this is GOOD.

This is a recipe I found on Pinterest and made it yesterday along with turkey, veggies, etc. Both Hal and I, every time we took a bite, would just stop and stare at each other and say, "I can't believe how good this is."

Enough of the build-up. Here it is:

Loaded Mashed Potato Casserole:

5 1/2 cups mashed potatoes (around 6-7 large baking potatoes)
1/2 cup milk
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
2 teaspoons dried parsley
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
8 slices bacon crispy cooked and crumbled

Preheat oven 350 degrees. Peel, quarter, and boil potatoes for 15-20 minutes or until soft. Drain potatoes and and beat with a mixer until smooth. Add milk, cream cheese, sour cream, parsley, garlic salt, and nutmeg. Beat at a medium-high speed until nice and creamy. Add salt to taste keeping in mind that the cheese and bacon will add a little salt later.Spoon into a 9x13 baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Top with cheddar cheese and bacon. Cover and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until cheese melts.

Serves 12 people. (and I made it for 2 - ha!)

Oh I like the nutmeg in this.

I do something simaliar in the summer alot, called Restaurant style Smashed Potatoes. (PW's) Like it cuz it involves no peeling or mashing, just smashing. Simaliar ingredients but lots of Season Salt and fried onions. ;-)
