“I was thinking of ways to dress up my mashed potatoes, as my boyfriend loves them. He loves bacon, and I love cream cheese, and I thought of this! What a wonderful recipe this is, we cannot get enough!”

Directions

  1. Pour water into a 6-quart pot; add potatoes and 2 tablespoons kosher salt. Place pot onto a cold burner. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook potatoes at a boil until potatoes are fork-tender, about 12 minutes; drain.
  2. Cook and stir bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until crispy, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon to a plate lined with paper towel to drain. Drain grease from the skillet, reserving 2 tablespoons in the skillet. Return skillet to medium-high heat. Cook and stir shallots in reserved drippings until translucent, 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Combine the shallots with the cream cheese, sour cream, butter, and garlic in a large mixing bowl. Dump the potatoes atop the cream cheese mixture; beat with an electric hand mixer to desired consistency. Season with kosher salt and cracked black pepper to taste. Transfer potatoes to a serving dish. Sprinkle parsley and bacon over the potatoes to serve.

It really does seem to be true that almost anything is improved with bacon, and it was the same with these potatoes. I love the combination of cream cheese and chives so I omitted the shallots and substituted chives for the parsley. To dress this up I prepared it in advance and piped it into mini cocottes, then baked them at 375 degrees about 25-30 minutes. Just as impressive as it was delicious.

What is not to love? These are delicious. I don't use a mixer to mash potatoes though, a hand masher does a great job without creating a sticky, gluey mess. If you use a mixer, be careful to not over beat.

These were amazing!! I wouldn't change a thing. A nice alternative when you want mashed potatoes as a side, but your main dish doesn't produce a gravy. We accompanied these with cabbage rolls. Incredible. Will definitely make these again :)
