Oven Baked Mashed Potatoes are creamy, delicious, and easy to assemble ahead of time. But, don't tell anyone, I've got the secret on how to make them with instant potatoes!


  • 12 servings of instant mashed potatoes, prepared (or about 6 cups)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 4 ounce cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, sliced thin
  • parsley, for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Prepare instant potatoes according to package directions. Make them thicker than normal by adding in some extra flakes.
  3. Once prepared, blend in sour cream, cream cheese, salt, pepper, and paprika.
  4. Pour into a buttered 13 x 9 baking dish. Sprinkle the top with a little pinch of paprika and place slices of butter over the top.
  5. Bake for 30-40 minutes. ENJOY.


  • To make ahead of time, before baking, cover with foil and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Remove from refrigerator and bake for 40-50 minutes uncovered. ENJOY.
  • To use fresh potatoes, you'll need 6 cups of mashed, about 10-12 potatoes, peeled.
