When it comes to the holidays, there are certain things that every holiday meal needs: turkey, gravy, stuffing, cranberries, green bean casserole, and… of course… mashed potatoes. It’s the traditional Thanksgiving dinner, and as much as I like to keep things traditional, I also LOVE mixing things up. Which is exactly where these Twice Baked Mashed Potatoes come in.
Made with Idahoan Loaded Baked Mashed Potatoes, sour cream, butter, cream cheese, Parmesan, and fresh herbs, they’re savory and creamy and cheesy and melt in your mouth delicious. They’re traditional without being boring. And they’re exactly what your holiday menu needs.

🥔 About these Twice Baked Mashed Potatoes
If you’ve ever tried Twice Baked Mashed Potatoes, you know just how delicious they are. But let’s be real for a minute. They take a long time to make! Between baking the potatoes, making the regular mashed potatoes, adding the extra ingredients, and re-baking them… you’re looking at hours. And who’s got time for that!?
This recipe is different. Because instead of starting with raw potatoes, it starts with a package of Idahoan Loaded Baked Mashed Potatoes. Which is full on flavor and ready in minutes. No more baking potatoes in the oven for an hour before you can even get started!
To the mashed potatoes, I added salted butter, sour cream, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, and fresh herbs. Since I knew I’d be topping them with gravy, I decided not to add any milk, but if you like yours extra creamy feel free to add ¼ cup of milk before baking.
The end result is a rich, creamy mashed potato casserole that literally melts in your mouth. Traditional… but better.
- 1 (8 ounce) package Idahoan Loaded Baked Mashed Potatoes
- 4 tablespoons salted butter
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 4 ounces cream cheese
- 1 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
- 1-2 tablespoons fresh minced herbs (I used a combination of rosemary, sage, and thyme)
Make the mashed potatoes – Prepare the potatoes according to package instructions.
Add the remaining ingredients – To the mashed potatoes, add the butter, sour cream, cream cheese, Parmesan, and herbs.
Bake it – Transfer the potatoes to a 1.5 quart baking dish. Bake at 375° for 30-40 minutes.
