Easy Loaded Mashed Potato Bake
2 packages (24-ounces each) real pre-made refrigerated mashed potatoes (about 5 cups)
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon onion power
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 to 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
Bacon, cooked and crumbled, divided
2 to 4 green onions thinly sliced
Preheat the oven to 350°F and lightly spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, sour cream, onion powder and garlic powder with 1 cup of cheese and half of the bacon. Mix well. Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking dish and sprinkle with the remaining 1 to 2 cups of cheese and remaining bacon. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Bake another 10 to 15 or until heated through. Top with onions and serve.
You can also use leftover mashed potatoes, instead of packaged mashed potatoes!
