  • Place potatoes into a large pot of lightly salted water; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain potatoes and return them to the pot.

  • Mash butter into the potatoes with a potato masher or electric hand mixer until melted completely into the potatoes; add sour cream and continue to beat until combined. Crumble bacon into the potato mixture; add Cheddar cheese and chives and stir. Season potatoes with salt and pepper.

I made this dish for my family. Wasn't a big fan of the recipe. I think it called for too much sour cream. It drowned out the flavor completely from everything else. If you do make it, I suggest adding the sour cream slowly to your liking. And maybe adding a bit of horse radish to give it an extra kick Read More

Adding these ingredients to mashed potatoes is not exactly creative or inspired but that doesn t make these any less delicious. Think about it sour cream cheese bacon chives butter mmmmmmm. Perfect with our meatloaf supper. Read More

They were okay but I think the recipe calls for too much sour cream and it messed up the flavour. Also I think I boiled the potatoes for too long so they were mushy. It made the mashed potatoes really goopy and sticky. Read More

This was so yummy! I upped the recipe to 20 servings for a Thanksgiving potluck and couldn't have been happier. A few things I did differently: I used about 75% peeled russet potatoes and 25% un-peeled baby red potatoes 50% sour cream and 50% cream cheese and cooked and crumbled the bacon the day before. They. Were. Delicious. Ended up with about 6 generous quarts that I kept warm in the crock pot. Read More
