Loaded Mashed Potatoes

Now who doesn't love a loaded baked potato? We switched things up a bit and mashed them till they were a creamy bowl of goodness. I failed to take a picture of these beauties, so I had to find a stock photo and "borrow" it so if the owner happens to stumble upon the footage of this my apologies. But you get the jist of what they looked like. These potatoes are all the goodness you can and want to throw into them. If you wanted to spice it up even more, you could actually bake the potatoes, slice in half, gently scoop out the centers and make twice-baked loaded potatoes. Just a thought. But here is the goodness we called loaded mashed potatoes!

Ingredients

5 potatoes
8 oz sour cream
3 bacon slices, crumbled
2 tbsp fresh chives, chopped
1 tbsp horseradish
1/4 cup cheddar cheese

Instructions

Peel the potatoes and dice. In a pot of salted water, add the potatoes and let cook until tender. Reserve a 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid and drain the potatoes. Place the potatoes back into the pot and on the stove (if your protein is still cooking, put the burner on warm or very low to keep the potatoes warm).


With a potato masher, mash the potatoes until they are at desired consistency. Fold in the reserved potato water, sour cream, bacon, chives, horseradish and cheddar cheese. Mix until well blended. Serve.
