  • Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and return to the pot.

  • Season potatoes with salt and mash until smooth. Stir in sour cream and cream cheese. Stir in 1 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese and bacon bits. Spread potato mixture in the prepared baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until heated through, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese on top; continue baking until cheese is melted, 5 to 10 minutes more. Garnish with chives.

Cook's Note:

When I am busy making many other things as well, I sometimes just buy a bag of the "ready-to-mash" potatoes that steam in the microwave from the frozen food section so I do not have to peel potatoes.

Better with Yukon Gold potatoes and light sour cream to replace the regular sour cream and cream cheese makes it a lighter dish. Red potatoes with skin-on makes this delicious too.
