"I love this recipe. For Thanksgiving, I left off the bacon and substituted shredded Parm instead of cheddar."

"Very good! On the rich side."

"These are by far the best mashed potatoes ever. I make them without the toppings (but with the cheese mixed in) for everyday meals, and the bacon, cheese and green onion toppings are perfect for holidays. The balance of the dairy products and seasonings is perfect, and ingredients are simple and usually on hand. They are even better reheated!"
