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

Try it with garlic!!! There's no going back! And sometimes I'll throw in some of the bacon grease ;) And a little ranch seasoning! P.S. Nice name! * Jamie Lee 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

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
