Loaded Mashed Potatoes

My family loves potatoes of any kind. But, different flavored mashed potatoes are among our favorite in the group. For me, it’s loaded mashed potatoes! I drool every time I think about making them.

Basically, for loaded mashed potatoes, you can add any of your favorite ingredients. Well, within reason. I added bacon, extra sharp cheddar cheese, pepper jack cheese,sour cream, crushed pepper flakes, butter, crushed black olive and chives which give a nice onion flavor. For the black olives, and those of you that do no like black olives, they actually are perfect in potato dishes. I’m not a big fan of black olives myself. But I do love the flavor addition in a couple of my famous potato side dishes. 

tatter ingredients

 Simply start off by washing and drying off 5-6 medium to large red potatoes, leave the skin on. Place on a cookie sheet and cook 45-60 minutes.

Once the potatoes are tender, place them in a large bowl, add the butter and smash them using a potato smasher or whatever you have on hand. You can cut and cube them as well.

If you have left over loaded mashed potatoes, the next day you can make Loaded Potato Cakes

 

Enjoy,
