Do the Mashed Potato

Check out the fancy footwork:


Seriously Mr. Ned, if you were my dad I'd dance with you. C'mon Alex. Do the mashed potato with your father.

Maybe over the holidays I can challenge my dad to a mashed potato dance-off.

He can wiggle his legs off, I will cook.

Deal?

Deal.

How do I mashed potato?

With LOTs of cheese and bacon of course.


Bacon Cheddar Mashed Potato


4 large baking potatoes, peeled and cut into 2" peices
Water, for boiling potatoes
Salt & Pepper, to taste
2 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup heavy cream or half and half
3 tbsp. butter
2 tsp garlic powder
4 slices of bacon
1/2 cup cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 375. Place bacon on a slotted cookie sheet over a jelly roll pan to catch the grease, and place in oven for 20-25 minutes until bacon is crispy.

While bacon is cooking, submerge potatoes completely in water. Add salt and boil for 20 minutes until potatoes are fork tender.

Once potatoes are fork tender, drain off the excess water and place them in a large bowl. Using a potato  masher, add heavy cream, cream cheese, butter, garlic, salt and pepper to taste, and mash until you get a creamy consistency. {You may need to add extra heavy cream to get them to the desired fluffiness.}

Once potatoes are mashed, put in a baking dish, top with cheese and chopped bacon, and BROIL on high for 3-4 minutes until cheese is melted.
