A mashed potato casserole is a perfect addition to any dinner – great for parties too. You can make potato stacks, potato wedges with delicious dip or scalloped potatoes – endless possibilities.
My mashed potato casserole is prepared in an easy way. I had leftover potatoes from yesterday and I decided to do something different with them. Instead of just reusing them or making gnocchi (that I always make) I prepared them with cheese, bacon and dill.
First, I made layers in my deep dish. On the bottom of the dish, I put mashed potatoes, then the Colby-Jack cheese and topped with cooked bacon. I also sprinkled the top with dill. Bake in the oven for about 20 – 30 minutes and my tasty dinner was done…they didn’t last long!

Colby Jack Cheese & Bacon Mashed Potato Casserole
- Preheat oven to 380 F. Spray 7" x 10" deep dish with olive oil spray. Misto works great for this.

- Lay mashed potatoes on the bottom of the deep dish. Add colby jack cheese on top. Set aside.
- Cut bacon into small pieces and cook in frying pan, in the ovan or in the microwave. Add on top of the cheese. Sprinkle with dill.
- Bake for 20 – 30 minutes.
