These bacon mashed potatoes are very tasty and put zing into a plain old side dish. I made these and the next day could not wait to eat the leftovers (hoping no one else got to them first).

Made as written and these turned out really good. I do think you could cut back on the amount of cheese and bacon so that the potato remains the star. Next time I'll only use 1 1/2 cups of cheese and 6 slices of bacon. Regardless, this is a good recipe! Read More
