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.

 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.
