Fouchy Potatoes

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our read the Privacy Policy

Fouchy potatoes, a TikTok viral sensation for the most buttery potatoes ever, is the most perfect side dish ever.

These potatoes are incredibly easy to make and filled with sour cream, heavy whipping cream, melty butter and lots of Parmesan cheese. There is no doubt in my mind that these potatoes will be the star of the dinner meal.

Easily impressive next to chicken, steak, pork or even lamb, this can’t go wrong dish pays homage to old fashioned traditional mashed potatoes with a new modern (and what I would call Southern) twist.

Where did “Fouchy Potatoes” originate from?

Before we get started, I want to share where this original recipe started. Viral on TikTok for weeks, I could not have been more intrigued when user CourtneyLouCooks shared her mom’s infamous potato side dish: Fouchy Potatoes.

You may have seen this one on your TikTok FYP but TikTok makes it so hard to follow full recipes, print them out and actually make them at home, so we test and share anything that may be worth your time – and this potato casserole is. Quite similar to our homemade mashed potatoes with cream cheese, this is a slight variation with similar creamy results.

FOUCHY POTATO GROCERY LIST

Before you get started, you need to check to make sure you have everything on hand to proceed with the recipe. As you can see checking out the recipe, these are rich and creamy mashed potatoes full of butter and cheese!

Here is the ingredient list. Once you have verified you have all side dish ingredients, move on to learning how to make this easy viral mashed potato recipe.

  • russet potatoes
  • butter
  • heavy whipping cream
  • sour cream
  • green onion
  • grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper

CAN OTHER KINDS OF POTATOES BE USED?

Absolutely! If you have a different type of potato in-house, for example, red potatoes or Yukon Gold, it’s fine to use or mix those in.

Are TikTok’s Fouchy Potatoes worth your time?

Truthfully they are really good. Just like our loaded baked potato casserole recipe, this dish is soft, flavorful, and delicious. One change that we would make is reducing the heavy whipping cream by half and the butter on top, to maybe 2 tablespoons.

Mine had a POOL of butter on top when I cooked it. It was good but needed to be mixed up to eat since it was so much butter.

  7. Add pre-cooked potatoes and mash mixture together.
  8. Add sour cream and beat well with a mixer until smooth.
