Mashed potatoes is not something we eat alot of around here. My kids are not big fans of them. Weird, right? I thought all kids loved mashed potatoes. Of course, nothing is the norm when it comes to my children's eating habits.
This was a bigger hit than our regular, plain mashed potatoes though. I will say it again..bacon and cheese, makes everything a bit better.
This casserole is very creamy, cheesy and would make a great side dish or you could serve as your main course. You could also put it together, cover it and put in the fridge.
Then, when you are ready, uncover and bake. It's a great dish to have for a holiday or to bring to a potluck.
