LOADED MASHED POTATO CASSEROLE
Today I battled the crowds at Target looking for last minute items for my kid’s Easter baskets. I didn’t end up with much but still felt successful.
Because in a world with a lot of “stuff”, I’ve been trying to simplify.
And kids really don’t need a lot to be happy. I guess I want to set the expectations low so they are appreciative when they do receive things. I’m trying to teach them what Easter is really about anyway.
AND I treated myself to a few somethings. Mmm…hmm…that’s right. Momma went shopping.
Okay…maybe I threw a couple of shirts in the cart at Target and hoped they would fit when I got home. And they did! That’s Shopping 101 ladies.
This Loaded Mashed Potato Casserole was sent to me by friend Wendy who found them on an old cut out recipe from Gooseberry Patch in her files.
They were so good and a different alternative to Gooey Potatoes. They are creamy, savory, and just like eating a loaded baked potato. Or in this case 7 loaded baked potatoes.

Your blurb talks about green onions and I feel like I made this a couple years ago with the green onions, but I don’t see it anywhere in your ingredients or instructions. Where do you add the green onions and how much?
Sarah, you are totally right! How did that get in there. There are no green onions in this recipe but you could add some on top for color.
oooooooo looks really good!
Can you make these ahead and freeze them?
I’ve never tried freezing these. Sorry!
Being a massive potato lover (potatoes for lunch and dinner daily anyone?!) , this recipe looks so great!!! Bookmarked and planned for the weekend!:)
I made these yummy potatoes for Thanksgiving and shared the recipe on my blog with credits to you! Thanks for a delicious recipe!
I LOVE these potatoes and my family does too! My only complaint is how long it takes to make between washing, peeling, cutting, and boiling the potatoes prior to making the casserole (but then again I am the queen of easy meals and most of the time I won’t make something unless it takes less than 20minutes). But this casserole is worth it!
Do you know if you can make these ahead, and then bake? Just wondering if you ever tried it. Made them last year for a holiday meal and everyone loved it!
Oh, the epitome of comfort food!
I just searched a “mashed potato” and find your site. Your version looks delicious, I would like to try it also as well as with your other mouth watering recipes.

Oh WOW I love the look of those stuffed mushrooms! Can I come to your house for Easter??? 🙂
Wow, all this looks delicious! Lucky you got some good deals, Good Friday is not a holiday where you are? Nothing is open here, but coffee shops, fast food and gas.
Holy crap I just gained ten pounds looking at that glorious spread you’ve got planned for Easter! Love you blog…I’m gonna try that mash pot casserole.
