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)



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.

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

    • You don't have to be suspicious of religion at all. Spend some time at church, if it fits you great, if it doesn't, you move on.   I went through dozens before i found a home,   If you are going to cast a suspicious eye. Do not start with governing body or a religion.   Start with the family, as that is where all the pressure, guilt and brain washing starts.  
    • You'll still only be able to go so fast with tracks whether you're turning 2 or 4. Sure might add a little speed with just 2, but any incline or terrain, having only rear tracks is just going to get you stuck.
    •     What one did you get???
    • took to long but I finally  ordered the grill this morning!! looking forward to using it!! 
    • 2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast.   On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase.   Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows.   Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
    • this thread is making me soooo hungry!!!!!!!!  great looking food guys!!
    •   True.  Trump doesn't either.   Like I said, we should be more suspicious of rulers and oppressors who use religion as a tool than the religion itself.    
    • We picked up a couple voles mid-last week, that must have come from our neighbor yard.  Once the neighbors snow melted, their nest was exposed and it is quite the elaborate colony too.  Got a deer mouse this morning also.   
    • The new minn kota 300d didn't have the two 20ga wires so just spliced the black  to black and red to white from the charging cables, hooked all the batteries back up and everything is working again.
