We’re not trying to compete with your grandma’s famous mashed potatoes (we would never do that to you, Grandma!), but on the off-chance that she gets tied up dealing with some reindeer, or has to bake an extra batch of cookies, we’ve got a dairy free smashed potatoes recipe that you can bring to the table. Is this recipe your “holiday miracle?” 


  • Baby Potatoes
  • 1 Jar Mild Nacho Cashew Queso 
  • 1 cup Dairy Free Shredded Cheese
  • ½ cup Melted Ghee  
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, minced 
  • 1 tbsp Sea Salt 
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper 
  • 1 Bunch Chives, thinly sliced 


  • 1 cup Bacon, diced & rendered


  1. Preheat oven at 375F. 
  2. In a pot of water, add potatoes, without peeling, and bring to a boil. 
  3. Cook potatoes until fork tender and drain. 
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  5. Pour melted ghee and garlic.
  6. Roll all potatoes on the tray and then, using the bottom of a cup or a firm flat small plate, smash all potatoes. 
  7. Sprinkle salt and pepper on each smashed potato. 
  8. Top each potato with a heaping spoonful of queso, bacon and shredded cheese. 
  9. Bake for 15-20 mins or until cheese is golden brown. 
  10. Remove from oven and serve with a dollop of sour cream & chives.
