I love loaded mashed potatoes and after you taste these you'll be hooked. We will add goodies like bacon, cheese and sour cream.
It's heaven on a fork, trust me. Grilled steak or roast chicken and asparagus is the perfect meal.
4 cups hot homemade mashed potatoes
1/2 cup sour cream
1-1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1/3 to 1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup green onion, chopped (garnish)
Mix the ingredients together and sprinkle with the chopped green onion; serve immediately. You can also add more shredded cheddar, and bacon on top of the hot potatoes in a bowl; out-of-this-world-good.
If you like, you may also prepare this in a casserole dish. Combine the potatoes, sour cream, bacon, salt, pepper and half of the cheese and spoon into a buttered 2 quart baking dish. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and green onion. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is melted.
This recipe is so versatile...you can saute mushrooms with the onions, add chilies, whatever you like in your mashed potatoes.
