Whenever I am in a restaurant I always order loaded mashed potatoes topped with cheese and bacon. They also add chives on top. I like them that way. Potatoes are my favorite and I make them often at home. When I am out of potatoes I am running to the store to pick them up. 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. They are the best and I have to admit I prefer them over rice, pasta or quinoa.

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!
