If you love potatoes this is an easy side dish with any meal.


Just remember you can microwave, boil or even use store bought mashed potatoes and doctor them up.


There are so many possibilities and additions to top these off with, even leftover chili, just get creative.


Also if you're not a big fan of sour cream or cream cheese just add more milk to the potatoes instead there is no wrong or right here just your taste buds.

Creamy mashed potatoes loaded with bacon and cheese. The yummiest ever!

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons whipped cream cheese
  • whole milk
  • 1 - 8 ounce container sour cream ( you can use lite)
  • crumbled cooked bacon around 6 strips
  • 4 potatoes cooked and mashed ( I microwave them first then peel and mash)
  • 1 1/2 cups to 2 cups of shredded mixed kinds of blended cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic granulated and 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • salt, pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Place the cooked mashed potatoes in a medium-size bowl mixed with whipped cream cheese, salt, pepper, garlic powder, parsley flakes plus add enough milk until desired thickness you like by using a fork. 
  2. Leaving some lumps is fine, I leave mine thick enough that it's hard to fall off a spoon.
  3. Place the mashed potatoes in an oil sprayed deep-dish pie plate.
  4.  Spread the sour cream on top, then crumbled bacon. 
  5. Smoother with shredded cheese and bake or microwave until completely melted
