Creamy Mashed Potatoes With Bacon

For Valentine's Day, I made the most delicious Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms. I had some filling leftover and I mixed it into my mashed potatoes. I have to say it is the best mashed potatoes I have ever had.

So folks, here is the recipe for the most amazing mashed potatoes. It is cheesy, creamy, loaded with bacon bits, and not one bit healthy. But it is absolutely delicious and everyone will be asking for second helpings.

4 large potatoes, peeled and quartered
4 tbsp butter
1/3 to 1/4 cup milk
3 slices of bacon, roughly chopped
3 cloves of garlic, finely minced
4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp black pepper

1. Place potatoes in a large pot and fill with water. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer until the potatoes are cooked. Drain.

2. Add butter to the potatoes and mash with a potato masher or fork. With a potato masher or wooden spoon, blend milk into potatoes until smooth and creamy.

3. In a small pan over medium heat, cook the bacon and garlic until the bacon is crispy. (Alternatively, you can cook the bacon in the microwave and saute the garlic in the pan)

4. Mix the cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, onion powder, black pepper, cooked bacon bits and sauteed garlic in a bowl.

6. Fold the cream cheese and bacon mixture into the mashed potatoes.
