Loaded Mashed Potatoes

by elyn_ryn

These potatoes are not only delicious but are very easy to make and are perfect for a Thanksgiving side dish. And it is surprising how much people love them! Maybe it is because they look so appetizing, or maybe mashed potatoes are just everyone’s favorite. Either way, this side dish is a winner.

Since the crispy bacon is added last and does not cook with the potatoes, it stays crispy. If you are not a bacon fan or want a vegetarian potato dish, just leave off the bacon.

Instructions
  1. Peel and slice the potatoes and place them in a pan of salted cold water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook for 15 minutes or until tender.
  2. Remove from the heat and drain well in a colander. Preheat the oven to broil.
  3. Place the cooked potatoes in a mixing bowl. Then heat 2/3 cup of evaporated milk and the butter in the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute until the milk is warm and the butter is melting. Stir until the butter completely melts.
  4. Add the milk mixture, salt, pepper, cream cheese, and sour cream to the potatoes. Stir by hand to combine. Then use the mixer to whip the potatoes until smooth. Add more warm milk if the potatoes are too stiff. Do not overmix.
  5. Use cooking spray to coat an 8 x 8 baking dish or an equivalent-size dish. Spoon the potatoes into the dish and smooth the top with a spatula. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the potatoes. Add more cheese if needed to make a thin coating over the entire top. Broil for 2 minutes or until the cheese melts.
  6. Remove potatoes from the oven and sprinkle with the bacon and green onions. Serve immediately.
