Food.......again.....delicious Mashed Potatoes

I know, I shared a recipe yesterday.  But given that this is Thanksgiving week and many of you will be making mashed potatoes on Thursday I thought I'd share my recipe as I have gained a bit of fame for it's deliciousness.

The title, given to these particular spuds by my family is

Mom's Famous Mashed Potatoes

1 5lb bag russet potatoes, scrubbed, peeled and quartered (make the pieces even sizes, may need more than quartering if they are big ones)
2.5 cups cheddar
1 cup sour cream
4 oz cream cheese
1 onion, diced and carmelized
1/2 cup crumbled bacon
2 sticks butter, melted and warm
1 cup warmed milk
salt and pepper to taste

In a large stock pot, place potatoes. Cover with water and bring to a boil.  Cook for about 15 mins at a good strong simmer or until potatoes are tender.

Drain and return to pot.  Mash potatoes and the butter well with a potato masher.  Once they are fully mashed, add cream cheese, sour cream and cheddar and milk with an electric hand-mixer. Finally, add remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly.

These potatoes have no need of gravy.  You can add more or less of the various ingredients as per your taste.  They have a horrendous number of calories, but I can tell you that everyone will want to come to your house for dinner any time you make them. You will then be famous too!

Someone has asked if this is baked, it is not baked (although it does look like it is in the photo)

Bon Appetit.  Oh, and so I'm honest, that picture is not of my actual potatoes as I don't have one handy.  But it looks about right.  Hope you'll forgive me that one.  If you wish to know, it came from this fine cook.   Her recipe looks pretty close actually.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
