Loaded Mashed Potatoes

Loaded Mashed Potatoes

A couple evenings ago I was prepping mashed potatoes and a salad for BBQ, and while making the mashed potatoes I was thinking how can I “spice” them up and I got a great idea! Why not take all the ingredients for a loaded baked potatoes and add  to the mashed potatoes!!!!

So I hope you guys enjoy my little creation! I made them two nights in a row already and we are loving it! They go so well with BBQ chicken (I will be posting my husbands awesome recipe next week)

Loaded Mashed Potatoes

  • 8 Red Potatoes
  • 4 tbsp Butter
  • ½ cup Milk
  • ½ cup Sour Cream
  • 3 Slices of bacon
  • ½ cup Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
  • 1/3 cup Green Onions, chopped
  • 1 Large Garlic Clove, Minced
  • Salt to preference


  1. Peel and cut the potatoes in half, then add to a pot and cover with water
  2. Turn the heat on high and once the potatoes have come to a boil switch heat to medium-low (make sure they always have a small boil)
  3. Boil for about 20-30 min (poke potato and once soft take off heat)
  4. Meanwhile slice the bacon into small pieces and fry on a skillet for about 5 minutes until they brown up
  5. Drain the potatoes and add the butter, milk, sour cream and garlic
  6. Mash the potatoes and salt to preference
  7. Then add the cheese, green onions and ready bacon. Fold in carefully
