Apple Mashed Potatoes Recipe

Apple Mashed Potatoes Recipe

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"
