Gouda Mashed Potato Casseroles
With an elaborate entrée, the side dishes must be up to par. Renew everyone’s love for mashed potatoes with Gouda and bacon.
Preheat oven to 400°. Coat four 1-cup casserole or soufflé cups with nonstick spray.
Cook bacon in a skillet until crisp; drain on a paper-towel-lined plate.
Boil potatoes in a pot of salted water until fork-tender, 12 minutes. Drain potatoes, return to the pot, and dry over medium heat 1 minute. Off heat, add milk, sour cream, and butter. Mash potatoes until smooth, then stir in bacon and white pepper; season with salt.
Divide half the potatoes among casseroles, top with half the Gouda, spread with remaining potatoes, then top with remaining Gouda. Bake casseroles until golden, 25 minutes; garnish with chives.
Make-Ahead Directions: Cover and chill assembled casseroles up to 1 day before baking and serving.
