Make Ahead Mashed Potatoes

This can be made the night before and my family that "hates" instant mashed potatoes, love these and never complain they aren't fresh.



  • non-stick cooking spray
  • 6 cup water
  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp. garlic salt
  • 2 tsp. onion salt
  • 2 (8oz) packages cream cheese, cubed and softened
  • 2 cup milk
  • 1 (16oz) container sour cream
  • 1 (15.3 oz) Hungry Jack mashed potatoes
  • Paprika
  • cooked bacon, chopped
  • chopped fresh parsley (if desired)


Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 13x9 inch baking dish with non-stick spray. Heat water, oil, butter, garlic and onion salt to a boil in a 6 quart dutch oven or saucepan. Remove from heat. Add cream cheese and sour cream, stir until cream cheese is dissolved. Add milk.

Stir in potato flakes, mixing until all ingredients are well combined. Spread into prepared pan.

Sprinkle with paprika and bake 1 hour or until bubbling around the edges and golden brown. Top with bacon and parsley if desired.


TIP: Before adding paprika and baking, potato mixture can be covered and stored in refrigerator up to 48 hours. Sprinkle with paprika and bake as directed.

I do not believe in using "prepackaged food". Too many chemicals. Just make your own mashed potatoes with some of the items added.
