These potatoes are an amazing hit with the family and very easy to make.
Amazing mashed potatoes - creamy and full of flavor! The bacon, green onions, and cheese make these mashed potatoes extra special!
What a great find! I made this for my adult kids and husband. They all agreed that THIS must be our "go to" potato recipe. I have to agree with them! So many flavors and spices make this a winner.
I started by making half of the recipe (as there were only 3 of us eating) and we all wished I'd made a full recipe. Unbelievable delicious and definitely a favourite!
I made this last Christmas and family loved it. . I am planning on making it again this year. It's the best make - ahead mashed potato recipe I have made.
