This month I’ll be posting recipes for every type of dinner guest you’ll have at Thanksgiving: the picky eater, the one you want to impress, the gluten-free guest, the kids, etc. But first let’s begin with the one dish you must make. Twice Baked Mashed Potatoes. They’re ooey, they’re gooey, they’re unbelievable. If your turkey burns, the dog eats your bacon green beans, the cranberry sauce falls onto the ground BUT this dish survives…you will be alright. Because pretty much I could eat a plate of these potatoes and call it an amazing meal.
4 large potatoes
4oz cream cheese, softened
5 slices cooked bacon, chopped
1/2 c. sour cream
2-3 T milk
salt and pepper
1/2 c. cheddar cheese for topping
Bake potatoes at 350 degrees until soft (60-90min). Cool slightly and scoop out into a large bowl. Mash potatoes and then mix in the softened cream cheese. Then mix in the other ingredients, adding milk until consistency of thick pudding. Salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle cheese on top and bake in a 8×8 casserole dish at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
