Reviews for Bacon Mashed Potatoes
"quick and delicious!"
"This was good and a nice change from plain mashed potatoes."
"I made chicken with this mashed potato recipe as a side dish. I am planning on making again. I heard that the mashed potatoes tasted like 'Thanksgiving' and someone even asked me if there was ham in it. I used turkey bacon which does not crumble, instead I tore it in small pieces, and was then mistakenly identified as ham by someone who did not know what ingredients were added."
