Cheesy Topped Mashed Potato Casserole

Posted by   + Show Post


There's only a few more months left of what I like to call "oven weather," where it's cold outside and the best part of making dinner is heating up the house with a nice meal in the oven. It makes the house smell inviting and it just seems to get everyone excited about dinner. This is one of my most favorite potato casserole recipes not only because it easy, but because everyone in the family just seems to love it - cheesy topped mashed potato casserole:

1 cup hot water

1/4 cup milk

2 tablespoons butter or margarine

1 1/3 cups Betty Crocker® Potato Buds® mashed potatoes (dry)

1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives, if desired

1/2 cup bite-size cheese crackers

1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (1 oz)

2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. In ungreased 1-quart casserole, mix hot water, milk, 2 tablespoons butter and the mashed potato mix. Cover with plastic wrap, turning back one side to vent steam. Microwave on High 2 to 4 minutes or until moistened.
  2. Whip potatoes with fork until fluffy; stir in chives. Smooth top of potato mixture with rubber spatula.
  3. Crush crackers. In small bowl, mix crushed crackers, cheese and 2 tablespoons melted butter; sprinkle over top of potatoes.
  4. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until potatoes are hot and topping is crisp.

Moms, what are your favorite casserole recipes?
