Mashed Potato Casserole with Smoked Gouda and Bacon

Mashed Potato Casserole with Smoked Gouda and Bacon

Just thought I would update this old favorite. This is a recipe I found in Bon Appetit Magazine back in 2009. Craig and I made this on Valentine’s Day that year as a side dish for our Surf and Turf dinner at home.

Mashed Potato Casserole with Smoked Gouda and Bacon

This casserole has smoky cheese and bacon, stirred into rich and creamy mashed potatoes. It doesn’t get much better than that!

This dish can be made 8 hours in advance, by covering and chilling potato mixture and remaining bacon mixture separately.

Ohhhhhh yes. Somehow, mashed potatoes seem to get forgotten this time of year, but I'm sure glad someone appreciates the year-round deliciousness. This looks SO good!
