These mashed potatoes are full of great flavor. They’ll de¬finitely be a hands-down winner with the hungry crew who gets invited over to try them.
5 1/2 cups mashed potatoes
1/2 cup milk
8-oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
8-oz. container sour cream
2 teaspoons dried parsley
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
6 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
How to Make It
Combine all ingredients except Cheddar cheese and bacon in a large mixing bowl. Beat at medium high speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Spoon into a lightly greased 13"x9" baking pan; top with Cheddar cheese and bacon. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake 10 more minutes or until cheese melts.
This is a good, solid recipe, but really nothing more than that. Admittedly I did use nonfat and low fat dairy products, but I don't think using the full fat varieties would add all that much. Although there is some cooking time involved, it's a very easy recipe to throw together and makes a very nice presentation at the table.
