NOTE: Chopped green onions, chopped parsley or cooked, crumbled bacon may be added to mashed potatoes.

Awesome Potatoes!!

- Sally Gordin from Ca

So good!

I love this without the bacon; vegetarian, easy to make and you can eat the whole pot.

Awesome potatoes

I thought this was a delicious way to have mashed potatoes. You could also pour potatoes after they were mashed into a casserole dish and sprinkle the cheese on top and bake in oven for 20 minutes and have a baked mashed potatoes dish. Very good also.

The only way to do it.

I've been making mashing potatoes like this for years and years. I'm happy to see it included here.
