How To Make special occasion baked mashed potatoes

Test Kitchen Tips
We baked our potatoes at 400 F for 45min - 1 hour until fork tender. Let them cool, peeled the skin off, and then mashed.
  • Potatoes, shallots, cheese, salt, pepper, and sour cream in a bowl.
    Mix the potatoes, shallots, and cheese in a large mixing bowl until well mixed. Season with salt and pepper. Fold in the sour cream one cup at a time.
  • Potato mixture poured into a baking dish with cheese sprinkled on top.
    Oil a large baking dish (13 X 9 or larger pan will do) very well. Place the potato mixture in the pan and sprinkle the top with the reserved cheddar cheese.
  • Potatoes baking until light golden brown.
    Bake in a 350 oven for 25 minutes until hot and lightly browned.
