It really does seem to be true that almost anything is improved with bacon and it was the same with these potatoes. I love the combination of cream cheese and chives so I omitted the shallots and substituted chives for the parsley. To dress this up I prepared it in advance and piped it into mini cocottes then baked them at 375 degrees about 25-30 minutes. Just as impressive as it was delicious.
What is not to love? These are delicious. I don't use a mixer to mash potatoes though a hand masher does a great job without creating a sticky gluey mess. If you use a mixer be careful to not over beat.
These were amazing!! I wouldn't change a thing. A nice alternative when you want mashed potatoes as a side but your main dish doesn't produce a gravy. We accompanied these with cabbage rolls. Incredible. Will definitely make these again:)
Labor intensive but really yummy - I left my red skins on to add color and vitamins. I also used onion instead of shallots and turkey bacon to cut back on the grease and fat. Delicious! 3/27/16 - made again and doubled recipe (or thought I did) but realizing now that I didn't add enough cream cheese or sour cream. They were on the dry side. Disappointed but my fault not the recipe.
I made this for Thanksgiving dinner and it was a big hit! Epic indeed! My only problem was that I didn't have "baking potatoes" (which I believe must be a lot larger than regular potatoes) so I used a few more of my regular size potatoes but I still ended up with too much creaminess and not enough potato. For this recipe if you don't have large baking potatoes I would recommend using about 8 regular size potatoes to provide adequate texture and vegetable to disperse the epicness into!
