Easy Mashed Potatoes with Bacon, Blue Cheese, and Scallions
For a tribute to the loaded baked potato, we stirred in crispy bacon, crumbled blue cheese, and sliced scallions to classic mashed potatoes.
Why This Recipe Works
For an easy, creamy mash, we started by cooking sliced Yukon Gold potatoes in well-seasoned water. We used half-and-half because it is richer than milk but not as decadent as heavy cream. Microwaving the half-and-half with the butter before combining the mixture with the mashed potatoes ensured a bowl of piping-hot potatoes on the dinner table. For a tribute to the loaded baked potato, we stirred in some crispy chopped bacon, crumbled blue cheese, and sliced scallions.
