Test Kitchen Tip

You can prepare this casserole ahead of time and refrigerate it, covered, until ready to bake and serve.


Preheat oven to 425°.

Cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp; drain on a paper-towel-lined plate.

Boil potatoes and garlic in a large saucepan of salted water, covered, until fork-tender, about 15 minutes.

Drain potatoes and return to pan over medium heat, stirring 1 minute to evaporate excess moisture.

Mash potatoes with cream, butter, and chives; season with salt. Transfer mashed potatoes to an 8-inch baking dish; sprinkle bacon over potatoes.

Combine sour cream, cream cheese, and Cheddar; season with black pepper and cayenne. Spread cheese mixture over potatoes.

Bake casserole until cheese is golden and bubbly, 2025 minutes.
