Creamy Mashed Potato Casserole
We spiced up a Thanksgiving classic, and the result is wonderful creamy texture, rich flavor and smiles all around.
3 pounds Russet potatoes, peeled and diced into 1-inch pieces
1 package Simply Organic French Onion Dip Mix
1/2 cup Organic Valley Sour Cream
1/2 cup Organic Valley Cream Cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup Organic Valley Butter
, cut into pieces
Place potatoes in a large pot. Cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork.
While potatoes are cooking, combine Dip Mix, sour cream, cream cheese, and salt. Stir until well mixed, and set aside.
When potatoes are tender, drain off the water. Add the sour cream mixture and butter to the potatoes. Mash potatoes using a hand-held mixer or potato masher. Place in a greased 3-quart casserole dish.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes, uncovered.
Prepare the casserole a day ahead, but do not bake it. Instead, cover and refrigerate. Increase bake time by about 15 minutes.
For an extra tasty treat, top with 1 cup Organic Valley Sharp Cheddar Cheese
Garnish by sprinkling Simply Organic Parsley
on top after removing from oven.
