Recipe Notes

  • Freshly grated cheese melts better, so grate the cheese yourself, if you like.
  • You can try different cheeses in this recipe, such as Gruyere or Parmesan. 
  • To get creative, feel free to throw in some bacon or green onions, if you like.
  • Store any leftovers in a container in the refrigerator and reheat in the microwave. This recipe can be frozen.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Cook the potatoes in boiling, salted water until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain well and return to pot.
  2. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher. Add the cream cheese, 1 cup of the cheddar cheese, sour cream and egg. Season with salt and pepper. Mash until smooth. 
  3. Put the mixture into a casserole dish. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 30 to 35 minutes. Top with the remaining cheese and bake 5 more minutes or until cheese has melted.
