One of the easiest side dishes you could probably ever make. It is also probably one of the first things I learned to make as a little girl helping my mom out in the kitchen. Although my mom’s version is very simple, but tastes great nonetheless, I like to experiment with my recipes a bit. My mom’s mashed potatoes are made with milk and butter and she’d whip them up in a mixer so they were always light and fluffy.
I’ve said this many times before. I love being able to search the internet for all kinds of recipes. Honestly if you think about it, it’s a shame nowadays to say you can’t cook because you don’t have any recipes. All you need to do is go and google anything you’re in the mood for eating and I guarantee you will find a few recipes. That’s what I do. Needless to say I also love to buy cookbooks so I have a lot of them, but as I’ve said, google is my friend.
So having said all that, I found this wonderful recipe on www.sippitysup.com and I was ecstatic. I modified the recipe a bit and added another type of cheese, so now these mashed potatoes are loaded with 3 kinds of cheeses, bacon and let’s not forget our friend, the butter. And for those of you on a diet, I threw in some chives. I’ve also modified the quantities of the original recipe. I love bacon, and I love cheese, so how can you go wrong?
You can’t! I have to admit this isn’t for those who are on a diet, but if you aren’t counting calories, well this is for you! These mashed potatoes are rich and full of flavor, they could literally be eaten as a meal on their own.
Without further ado, here is the recipe.
