Reviews for Loaded Mashed Potatoes
"The recipe is delicious. I don't eat dairy so I swapped out the cheese for daiya cheddar, the milk for soy milk, and earth balance for the butter. It worked famously and my dairy eating roommates loved it too. Thanks for posting the recipe."
"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 !(:"
"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. 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!"
"It was a huge hit and will make again."
"The guys have declared this a Keeper! Big hit this Thanksgiving."
"Made it for a family get together. Everybody loved it. Yes, I'll make it again for this Thanksgiving. It is a winner."
"I love mashed potatoes with any meal and I like the ingredients used in this. I make one similar but only use sour cream and cream cheese. It never dawned on me to make them loaded!"
