Bacon & Gouda Mashed Potatoes

I was in search of a mashed potatoes recipe for a party, but wanted something that wasn’t too similar to what everyone would be eating at Thanksgiving, so this recipe Looked perfect. Everyone at the party  was raving about it, so I think it might just replace ordinary Thanksgiving mash from now on 😉

Mashed Potatoes with Gouda and Bacon

Bacon and Gouda Mashed Potatoes

Serves 8-10

Ingredients:

  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 5 large scallions, chopped
  • 3 pounds petite red potatoes, halved or quartered
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup butter, at room temp
  • 1/3-1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 cups smoked gouda, grated
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Grease a 9×13 baking pan.
  3. Cook bacon until desired crispness. Drain on paper towels.
  4. Chop bacon and place in a medium bowl.
  5. Add scallions and toss together.
  6. Place potatoes in a large pot full of salted water. Cover and boil until potatoes are tender. Drain.
  7. Add sour cream, butter, and milk to the pot of potatoes. Mash together until your desired consistency (I like to have some of my potatoes still a bit chunky).
  8. Stir in 1 1/2 cups smoked gouda and 1 cup of the bacon mixture.
  9. Season with salt and pepper.
  10. Put all that deliciousness in the baking pan and top with the remaining gouda.
  11. Bake for about 30 minutes, the top should be golden.
  12. Once it’s out of the oven, place the remaining bacon mixture on top before serving.

Enjoy!
