Directions

  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with lightly salted water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two.
  2. Mash the potatoes until smooth, then add the cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, bacon, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder. Mash until the ingredients are well blended, then transfer to a serving dish, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese to garnish.

Unfortunately, two stars if you dare to prepare this as written, but very good after significant doctoring up. Way too much cream cheese, while at the same time sorely wanting for butter, milk or sour cream. The amount of cayenne pepper and garlic powder is extraordinarily excessive. Better with cooked and crumbled bacon. Finally, I can't help but think the submitter intended for this to be sprinkled with maybe a 1/4 CUP of Parmesan, not 1/4 tsp? After the above modifications as well as as the addition of a healthy amount of fresh, chopped chives, definitely 4-star quality - creamy and flavorful without assaulting the palate with an overload of garlic and cayenne.

These were good for a different twist on plain old mashed potatoes. The cayenne definitely gave them a kick, but we really liked it. I did need to add a little milk while mixing because they were a little thicker than we like. Overall they were great! Thanks!

I doubled the amount of potatoes called for (one pound of potatoes was not near enough to feed the four of us, let alone ten), cut the amount of cream cheese by a third and added a little milk to loosen the potatoes up a bit. I also used reduced fat cream cheese. I served this with Elegant Stroganoff Meatballs and a tossed green salad. These potatoes were very good--but I don't think I'd pair them with a rich dish like stroganoff meatballs again. My mistake. We still enjoyed them.
