...with a side of baby backs...😄

Yesterday was another smoked baby back ribs day and for a side, I wanted to do something besides regular mashed or smashed potatoes. I thought about a mashed potato casserole so I searched on here and the only one I could find was David's DRKsmoking DRKsmoking posted here...

So his pointed me in a direction and here we go...
  • 4 lbs. gold potatoes peeled
  • 1 cup ½&½
  • ½ stick of unsalted butter
  • 2 heaping TBS sour cream
  • 8 oz. extra sharp white cheddar cheese shredded
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 lb. bacon fried crispy and chopped
  • Green onion chopped for looks
  • Salt & white pepper to taste
Chop and boil the potatoes in heavily salted water. Combine the ½&½, butter, sour cream in a pot on low to warm the milk and melt the butter...

Once the potatoes are tender, drain and add the cream cheese and mash...

Next, I added about half of the white cheddar cheese and mixed to combine. Then the sour cream/butter/milk combo a little at a time until I got the consistency I was looking for, it didn't take quite all of it. Mixed to combine. Tasted and add the salt and white pepper. I added about 2 tsp of each...

Put in all in a glass baking dish and scatter the chopped bacon on top, then the rest of the cheddar cheese. Cover with foil and baked at 375℉ for about 45 minutes. Remove the foil and bake 15-20 minutes longer until the cheese starts to brown....

Scatter the chopped green onions on top, ready to eat...

I served this with smoked baby back ribs that were coated with a dry rub, nothing special. Smoked with cherry splits for 4 hours then sauced a few times for the next 2 hours. One was a spicy red sauce and the other was a gold sauce. No foil wrap...

I wanted to make a post for others that may be looking for something else to do with potatoes, that's why this is here in the 'Sides' forum. Also added a tag.

Another note is to be careful warming the sour cream/butter/milk mixture. Whisk to prevent separation. Better way may be to warm the milk and butter before adding the sour cream, then whisk to combine...

Man do those potatoes look good... OH... the ribs do too....

Let me ask... How many BIG eaters will the potatoes feed ??
Keith, it should feed 10 normal eaters so I'd guess 5-6 with big appetites. Thanks for the compliments...
 
Heck of a dish Charles. I'm gonna have to give these a whirl real soon. I'll probably add some garlic to the mix. I love me some garlicky mash taters.

Point for sure
