Rusty Mashed Tators12:00:00 AM
OH mylanta! I went to cook dinner...and I really didn't feel like it. Looked around to see what I had and BAM...the bomb diggity of all mashed potatoes recipes were born. RIGHT THERE...in MY kitchen!
Are you ready for this?! Preheat your oven at 350...You will need:
- 4 large russet potatoes (peeled/washed)
- 1/2 jar of bacon bits
- 1/2-1 cup of cheddar grated
- 1 large clove of garlic
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 2 oz cream cheese
In a separate bowl you will put the sour cream, cream cheese 1/4 of the jar of bacon bits, 1 large clove of garlic (minced...pressed...you get it!) and then dump your potatoes inside and start mixing together! You will add milk as you are whipping your potatoes and salt/pepper to taste. When that is to the correct "mashed tator" consistency you are going to mix in 1/4 of your cheese mixture!
Place your tators in a casserole dish and dump the remaining cheese over top and 1/4 of the container of bacon bits. Place in your oven at 350 for 20 minutes and VOILA...the tastiest tators you ever did try! Even the baby loved them!!
