Reviews for Loaded Mashed Potatoes
"Im 15 wasnt sure if i would be able to pull it off because im not much of a cook but i just got finished, eating it now and its AMAZING ! Definately going to show this recipe to my family. Thank u for sharing !(:"
"Made this for a friend's birthday dinner and it was a huge hit. My family also requested it for Christmas dinner as well. So easy to prepare, I made the casserole a day ahead (for Christmas) as suggested by another reviewer, so glad I did. There was no difference in taste or texture."
"I prepared these delicious potatoes for our Christmas dinner and they were the hit of the dinner. Everyone loved them and I had to send half of what was left home with son and daughter in law. We all went back for seconds. Other than omitting the onions, I followed the directions exactly. This recipe has found a permanent place in my recipe file. Here is the link to my review: http://community.tasteofhome.com/community_forums/f/30/p/905378/7874113.aspx#7874113. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home."
"Absolutely delicious. I love loaded baked potatoes and this recipe makes it so easy to do it for a crowd. It also makes a very attractive dish."
"I've made this several times and my husband loves it. I always halve the recipe: 4 medium potatoes, 4 slices of bacon, but 3 green onions, since there is no such thing as too much green onion. :-) Made these again tonight, but discovered at the last minute that the sour cream had gone bad. So I substituted some crumbed feta cheese. Awesome!"
