Loaded Mashed Potatoes

3 posts in this topic

Just thought I'd share one of my favorite side dishes (just put the left over in the fridge), acctually this could pass for hotdish sometimes...

5 lbs potatoes, washed and scrubed

1 lb bacon, diced into 1/4 slices

1 medium white onion or small bunch of green onions, diced

3-5 cloves of garlic, minced (powdered or otherwise will work also)

8 oz Shredded cheese (Preferably finely shredded, Mexican blends work well)

Milk

Butter

Pretty simple really, and completly unhealthy grin

Boil potatoes, skin on, until soft, fry diced bacon until crisp.

Take bacon off heat and drain about 2/3 of grease off. Add onions and garlic to cooked bacon.

Mash potatoes with large spoon, add in bacon/onions/garlic plus cheese and about a half stick of butter and a half cup milk. Whip with hand mixer until desired consistency, I like mine fairly chunky.

Enjoy!

I use a very simular recipe, sometimes use sour cream instead of the milk though. Very good.

    • Not going to worry about much until later in the season, we know they can't stay crazy hot forever and slumps will happen, just as long as they are too long I will be happy. I just want them playing really well down the stretch.

    • I've said for years that he needs to wear a helmet, but it was for entirely different reasons.
    • I think that is talking about painkillers etc.      Likely he is taking stuff like statins and blood pressure meds as a minimum.  And he had some depression issues, as I recall, so perhaps something for that.     I saw a thing on TV that said it could have been a vasovagal syncope.  Basically you pass out due to stress.
