Duck Dynasty Mashed Potato Casserole

It’s holiday time and that means I am cooking much more than usual {and that says a lot} and most of the time I am cooking for a crowd! This week we attended a Thanksgiving Potluck for my husband’s unit and their families. I wanted to bring a kid friendly side dish to go with the turkeys everyone was going to be gobbling up {pun intended!}. I came across this recipe by Ms Kay from Duck Dynasty and I knew it would be a crowd pleaser! 

Makes 8 servings


  • 3 lbs russet potatoes peeled and cut into cubes
  • 1/2 tbsp salt
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 1 pkg {8 oz} cream cheese softened and cubed
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk warmed
  • 1/2 stick {4 tbsp} butter softened
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt
  • pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp butter melted


  • Add the potatoes to a large pot of water.
  • Add the salt and garlic cloves.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer until the potatoes are fork tender, about 20 minutes.
  • Drain then pour potatoes into a large bowl.
  • Mash the potatoes and garlic with a masher.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Add the cream cheese, sour cream, milk, and butter to the potatoes and stir until smooth.
  • Stir in the seasoned salt and pepper to taste.
  • Pour into a greased 9X13 baking dish and smooth evenly on top.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the panko, Parmesan, and paprika.
  • Drizzle with the melted butter and toss to coat. Sprinkle over the potato mixture.
  • Bake until the potatoes are heated through and the topping is golden brown, about 30 minutes.
