Loaded Mashed Potato Casserole

 
To say we love mashed potatoes is an under statement!  My husband would love to have them every week if I would let him!  When I came across this recipe I thought it would be a nice new twist to the usual mashed potatoes!  Plus I didn’t have anything to make gravy and you can’t eat mashed potatoes without gravy!
The great thing about this recipe you don’t need gravy cause there is so much flavor already.
It reminds me of twice baked potatoes but in a big casserole instead.
 

Loaded Mashed Potato Casserole

5-6 pounds potatoes, peeled and diced
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp Milk
1 Ranch Dressing Packet
1/4 cup bacon
1-2 green onions, chopped
1/2-1 cup Cheddar Cheese

Peel potatoes and boil in a pot of water until soft, drain water and place in a bowl.  With a mixer cream potatoes together with the butter, milk and ranch packet until smooth.  Place potatoes in a sprayed casserole dish.   Add cheese, bacon and green onions on top of potatoes and place in oven and cook at 350 for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted.

My Notes:
You can also add cream cheese or use sweetened condensed milk to make your mash potatoes a little bit more creamy.

    I have a question: the bacon goes cooked in the oven or do I sprinkle it raw and cooks inside the oven?
