    Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes

    Taste of Home recipe
    Excerpted with permission from Taste of Home's Best Loved Recipes.

    3 pounds potatoes (about 9 medium), peeled and cubed
    1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
    1/2 cup sour cream
    1/2 cup butter, cubed
    1/4 cup 2% milk
    1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    6 bacon strips, chopped
    1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
    3 green onions, chopped

    1. Place potatoes in a Dutch oven and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until tender. Drain; mash potatoes with cream cheese, sour cream and butter. Stir in milk and seasonings.

    2. In a small skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels to drain.

    3. Transfer potato mixture to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish; sprinkle with cheese, onions and bacon. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

    4. Remove potatoes from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40-50 minutes or until heated through.
