Mashed Potato Casserole - Paula Deen

Paula Deen is known for her Buttah and fattening and unhealthy recipes. Despite this, she is one good cook and her recipes are worth following with a few changes.  I have learned to almost automatically cut down on the fats in her recipes and they still are full flavored.

I know that her health has changed her eating habits but I still have many of her old recipes.

Mashed Potato Casserole

Ingredients:

2 cups mashed potatoes
 sour cream (cut to 1/4 cup low fat)
1 small onion, sliced thin
1 small bell pepper, sliced thin
(one tablespoon margarine)
grated Cheddar (1 cup)


Method:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Spread one half mashed potatoes evenly on bottom of casserole dish.

Layer sour cream evenly over top of potatoes

Saute onion and bell pepper in margarine and place over sour cream.

Add the other half of mashed potatoes.

Top with shredded cheddar cheese.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

Eat and enjoy.

  6. Hi Chaya,

    I have this assumption too that PD is using a lot of butter for her cooking but I am changing my opinions now after trying out a few of her recipes.

    Good that you have transformed this PD's classic mashed potato recipe to suit your taste and family.
