Let's talk comfort food.
I lurv it. I lurv it a lot. That's why my rear end is so ginormous.
My comfort foods include, but are not limited to, butter, pizza, perogies, mashed potatoes and gravy, soup, chicken and dumplings (omigosh - I haven't MADE that with you yet? My bad), fresh tray buns with butter, turkey, stuffing, cake with lots of icing, Laughing Cow cheese, Biscoff, cookie dough blizzards, cookies, muffins, lasagna, pasta with cream sauce, etc. etc.
I would say that this potato side dish definitely would constitute as a comfort food.
'Cause it's full of delightful things - and it's EEEEEEEEASY!!!!
Cook potatoes until they are fork-tender. Then add in butter and sour cream.
Then mash the potatoes until smooth as desired and throw in the green onions. The recipe actually calls for chives, but I couldn't find any. And the garlic.
Spread the potatoes into a 9 x 13 baking pan.
Top with cheese and bake until the cheese is melted. It'll only take a few minutes.
Then top with a container of French-fried onions. Can never have too much of those.
Then bake until the French-fried onions are crisp and golden.
Oh MY these were so good!!! The crispy onions, the cheesy love, the garlicky mashed potatoes. Yum, yum, yum......
So if you're having something like chicken fingers or a slow-cooker roast beef and need a side - I recommend these.
Believe me - you'll be adding these potatoes to your list of comfort foods in no time.
