Apple Mashed Potatoes

I love potatoes…especially mashed. When I came up with this combination, it was declared a winner. I serve this as a side dish when I have pork as an entree, but it's great with any meat. —Rebecca Page, Pensacola, Florida

    Made this tonight with pork. I followed the recipe exactly except I sauted the onion in some bacon grease, added the vinegar, butter, sugar and crumbled bacon and then added all to the potatoe/apples and mashed it all together. My husband and daughter loved this recipe. And it was so easy! And oh, so good!

    Sometimes I leave out the bacon due to some guests being vegetarian. Very tasty and goes with other meats

    This was a good recipe, tastes great. If you are worried about ingredients not being healthy, moderation is the key. Thank you for sharing your great recipe Rebecca.

    Salt, butter, sugar,bacon, potatoes and apples you have a complete meal in one dish. This qualifies as a casserole.
