Can you tell that I have been on a potato kick lately. I think this is the third or fourth potato recipe that I have posted in the last couple of months. I guess you can tell I like potatoes a lot.
Two of my favorite ways to eat potatoes are twice baked and mashed. This recipe today combines the best of both of those dishes.
These loaded mashed potatoes have the creaminess of mashed potatoes, but are loaded with all the unhealthy and yummy ingredients of twice baked potatoes.
Loaded Mashed Potatoes
Mashed potatoes made better!

- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 4 slices cooked bacon ( or a little more) chopped
- Cook potatoes in salted water until tender.
- Drain potatoes
- Mash potatoes with milk and butter until well-mashed and creamy.
- Stir in cheese and bacon.
- Serve and enjoy!

these look great!
Yummy! My whole family would love these! Especially the addition of bacon. I think we could eat bacon on and in just about anything! I’ll have to give this recipe a try. Thanks for sharing it with us! 🙂
Oh my gosh, I want these NOW! I want these for breakfast!
Yeah, I like taters.
I like adding a bit of cream cheese or blue cheese dressing to my potatoes sometimes. Shredded cheese is always yummy too, whether Cheddar, or Swiss!
