Loaded Mashed Potatoes with Bacon

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Mashed potatoes that could be a meal. Hardy, filling, and savory. I started making mashed potatoes this way mainly for my daughter who loves loaded baked potatoes. The first time I tried this was because we were having company for dinner and I was running low on potatoes. It was the hit of the dinner. About a year after I started making them this way, we went to a restaurant that had a similar offering. My daughter said mine was still better."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Lay bacon strips in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until browned and crisp, about 15 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels. Leave oven on.
  4. While the bacon is cooking, place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain, place in a large mixing bowl, and mash with a fork or potato masher.
  5. Chop bacon and add to potatoes. Stir in sour cream, Cheddar cheese, green onions, salt, and pepper until well mixed. Transfer to a large casserole dish.
  6. Bake until potatoes are heated through and cheese is melted, about 45 minutes. Re-mix to blend cheese throughout and serve hot.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I use turkey bacon to cut back the fat and sodium.
