Easy Cheesy Sour Cream Baked Mashed Potato Recipe

Reader Recipe: Powderhorn Potatoes

This story was written by member b1uebunn and comes from the Kitchen Goddess group in the YumSugar Community.Check out her family's Thanksgiving recipe when you read more.
Everyone will tell you they have a hashbrown casserole, they have some cheesy potatoes, they've got some Campbell’s soup slop recipe. Read my lips: They are full of sh*t. It’s these, baby. These are potatoes so good you’ll think about them as you fall asleep at night.

Powderhorn Potatoes

10 medium baking potatoes
1/2 c butter
2 c sour cream
1/4 c green onions (or as many as you want–I cut up like three stalks)
8 oz. sharp cheddar cheese salt pepper


  1. The night before, bake potatoes at 400 degrees for 1 hour. Take them out of the oven and store in the fridge overnight.
  2. The next morning, peel the potatoes and grate them into a very large bowl.
  3. Combine butter, sour cream, green onions, cheese, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix very well. There is so much, you might need to get your *very clean* hands in there to mix. Remember to remove your rings.
  4. Transfer well mixed ingredients to a casserole dish. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes, or until slightly browned on top.

That’s the other great thing about this dish; it's for any meal! It makes a great breakfast/brunch dish, and it's the perfect accompaniment to most dinners. My mom even makes them for Thanksgiving, and I'm told they're awesome with gravy. Do you have an amazing Thanksgiving recipe? Please participate in our Thanksgiving recipe challenge.

We make this too! But we call it "Golden Potato Bake." We will also put a little bit more shredded cheese on top so it gets all browned and crispy.
