Mashed Potato Supreme

Mashed Potato Supreme
There’s something about winter that brings out our favorite dishes. Maybe it’s because we all love something warm and filling to eat when it’s freezing outside, like today, -33 with windchill!

This recipe for Mashed Potato Supreme is well, supreme! It’s a great side dish and we love pairing it with baked ham.

And I am realizing my readers, like my husband, love cheesy dishes. This one calls for cream cheese (ha, not really a cheese!), parmesan cheese, and cheddar cheese. And my favorite part – the peppers!

Mashed Potato Supreme

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: One 9x13 inch pan


  • 3 pounds of red potatoes, cubed (skin on or off, your choice)
  • 6 oz cream cheese, let sit at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup milk or half and half
  • 1-2 peppers of your choice, diced
  • 1/3 cup green onions, diced
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Wash and cube potatoes and place in a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Boil for 10-15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Drain.
  3. Mash the potatoes and add the cream cheese, butter, and milk/half and half, beat until blended. Stir in the peppers, green onion, salt and pepper.
  4. Stir in the cheddar cheese and parmesan cheese.
  5. Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish and transfer the mashed potatoes to the dish.
  6. Cover with tinfoil and bake for 20-25 minutes or until it's heated through.
  7. If you want the top to get a little crispy, don't cover the pan with tinfoil.

    What an awesome comforting mashed potato Beth! It definitely sounds supreme and looks really creamy and tasty:)

      It really is yummy!

    Oh my, I heard it was that cold with the windchill on the news last night… that is just unreal! I’m just happy our wind is not blowing. We live within a couple mountain ranges and it blocks out a lot of the wind… or we’d be in the same chill as you. So cold!
    I love how you created this potato dish, Beth. Love the cream cheese in it… so creamy! Have a great day!

    • The First Year Blog — January 7, 2014 at 5:43 pm

      I would love to live near mountains! Enjoy this dish Gloria!

    I love mashed potatoes, but these look OVER the TOP awesome

    • The First Year Blog — January 8, 2014 at 7:17 am

      Oh, they are over the top and so so good!

  4. A Tablespoon of Liz — January 7, 2014 at 10:11 pm

    yum, these look amazing! They kind of remind me of twice baked potatoes only without the potato skins.

    • The First Year Blog — January 8, 2014 at 7:16 am

      You could leave the skins on if you’d like too!

    This looks delicious! We make a very similar recipe that we call Holiday Potatoes. Funny thing is that’s the only time we make it too.

    • The First Year Blog — January 8, 2014 at 7:14 am

      Oh Holiday Potatoes sounds interesting. It is because it has green and red peppers?

  6. Wow! Cold weather or warm weather, this looks delicious! I live in Puerto Rico, so over here the sun always reigns supreme. lol I would pair this dish with rice, beans and “carne guisada” (stewed beef) or something along those lines. We eat rice and beans with anything, as you can see! :) Or maybe with a nice sandwich… Oh my goodness, I’m getting hungry now! I pinned your recipe and hope to make it soon. Thanks for sharing!

    • The First Year Blog — January 8, 2014 at 7:13 am

      Hi Adrienne – I love rice and beans! I wonder if I would make a good puerto rican? :-) Enjoy my friend!
