  • 12 medium Yukon Gold potatoes
  • ¼ cup (60g) butter
  • ¼ cup (60ml) milk
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) each salt & pepper
  • 1 cup (240g) sour cream
  • 8 ounce (227g) package cream cheese, room temperature
  • 3 green onions, chopped - including 2 inches of green stem
  • 1 cup (115g) shredded cheddar cheese - use old for flavor


Peel potatoes and cut into cubes. In a large pot of cold salted water, boil potatoes for 15 minutes until fork tender. Do not overcook! Drain and transfer into a large mixing bowl. Add the butter, milk, salt, pepper, sour cream, and cream cheese. Mix with a hand mixer until blended together and lump free. Stir in chopped onion and cheddar cheese. 

Place into an ovenproof casserole dish and garnish top with extra cheese.  Bake at 325°F/163°C for 35–40 minutes.  If reheating, remove from refrigerator 1 hour before heating.  

Bake covered for 40-60 minutes until center is hot.  Remove cover for 10 minutes to let top brown lightly.
