Bacon Cheddar Mashed Potatoes

Posted in : Dinner on by : Chris Tags:

This Thanksgiving I decided to get a little fancy with my mashed potatoes. Giving this recipe a shot. I’ll update on how well it goes over (though with bacon and cheese how can you go wrong?)


  • 1/2 pound bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 pound grated sharp cheddar
  • 1/4 cup minced parsley
  • 1/4 cup minced scallions
  • 2 pounds Russet or Yukon gold potatoes
  • 1/2 stick buttor
  • 1 cup milk


Cook 1/2 pound chopped bacon until crisp. Make Classic Mash; replace half of the butter with 2 to 4 tablespoons bacon drippings. Fold in some bacon; sprinkle the rest on top.

Add 1/2 pound grated sharp cheddar and 1/4 cup each minced parsley and scallions.

Classic Mash Cover 2 pounds whole russet or Yukon gold potatoes with cold salted water; simmer 45 minutes. Drain, peel and mash with 1/2 to 1 stick butter. Add 1 cup hot milk, and salt and pepper; mash until smooth and fluffy.
