Foodie Friday - Loaded Mashed Potatoes
Foodie Friday, I am linked up to the party over at Designs by Gollum. Make sure you go and check it out!
Loaded Mashed Potatoes
(either in the Crock Pot or the oven)
I use about 5-6 lbs of potatoes to make a big batch
5lbs russet potatoes or your favorite potato
3 – 4 wedges of laughing cow cheese ( I use the garlic and herb light version)
4-5 ounces Cream cheese
2-3 tablespoons milk
1 stick of butter
At least 1 cup shredded cheddar/Monterey jack cheese mix
4-5 green onions sliced
5 ounces or so sour cream
Salt and pepper
Boil and mash potatoes. Add cream cheese, milk, ¾ of the butter, sour cream, laughing cow cheese. Salt and pepper well and mix. If you are baking the dish, grease or spray a large casserole dish. Oven to 350 degrees. Put half the potato mixture in the pan, sprinkle half the green onions on. Sprinkle half the Cheddar Monterey Jack cheese blend over. Top with remaining potatoes. Sprinkle the other half of the cheese blend and green onions on the top. I cover this and bake it for 30 minutes, remove the foil and bake for about 10 minutes more.
If you want to do the crock pot method, refrigerate potatoes until you are ready to warm them in the crock pot. Use the same technique as above, spraying the crock pot, layering the potatoes, green onions and cheese. I heat this on Low for about 3-4 hours.
