Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 to 4 lbs russet potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter

3. Transfer the potatoes back to the saucepan. Using a masher, mash the potatoes until almost smooth. Add the cream cheese, sour cream, butter, milk, salt and pepper. Continue mashing until the mixture os smooth. Stir in 1 cup of the cheese and half the bacon.

4. Spoon the mixture evenly into a lightly oiled 3-quart casserole dish. Use a spatula or fork to make an irregular surface.
