Loaded Mashed Potatoes {recipe}

I was going to make loaded potatoes in the crock post last week.  The recipe looked so good and I love potatoes with all the fixins'.  But, I never quite got around to making them.  I forgot to prep them one night and then I checked the recipe again and it only had a time for cooking on low and I was worried that maybe they wouldn't cook through on high for a shorter time.  So, it just didn't happen.

Lucky me!

Friday evening I gave Phee the choice of chicken and potatoes or mac & cheese for dinner.  She chose mac & cheese... and mashed potatoes.  My kinda girl.

So, I made mashed potatoes.  And then I doctored them up.  With cheese and bacon.

The result was delicious.  I'm sure everyone probably makes these, but I hadn't ever done it before and I was thrilled with the results.  I can't wait to make them again.  And maybe share them, because I ate way too many this time!

  • 8-10 medium size red potatoes, cut into small chunks (skin on or off, your choice)
  • 5 strips of bacon, crumbled
  • 1/2 c shredded cheddar
  • 1/2 c sour cream
  • 4 T butter
  • 1/2 t rosemary
  • milk
  • salt and pepper to taste

  • Boil the chopped potatoes until tender.  Drain and mash.  (I use a hand mixer, not a masher.)
  • Add the butter and sour cream until completely incorporated.
  • Mix in the cheddar cheese, rosemary and crumbled bacon.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • If the potatoes are too thick and sticky, add milk until you get the desired consistency.

I would eat these every day.  Seriously.  Enjoy!
