Russet Potatoes | Water Butter | Sour Cream Milk | Garlic Powder Salt | Cheddar Cheese TOPPINGS Panko | Butter Chives | Bacon Cheddar Cheese
Peel, chop and boil the potatoes until they are fork tender and easily mashed. Add in the butter, sour cream and milk and mash until smooth and creamy. Season with garlic powder and salt to taste.
Be careful not to over mash the potatoes to give them a gummy texture. Add the cheese and stir to combine. This makes the entire dish extra cheesy.
Add the potatoes to a baking dish, top with the toasted panko. This gives a wonderful toasty taste, plus some added texture to the finished dish. Then top with additional shredded cheddar cheese.
Bake this until warmed through and the cheese on top is melted. Top with crumbled bacon and chives.
