If only there were leftovers..... Mashed Party Potatoes "Big Guy" Style
Let me first apologize. As I whisked dinner to the table this evening, I had a fleeting thought. I'll take a picture of these beautiful Mashed Party Potatoes after we eat. Well, there were no leftovers. ZERO. Nada. Zilch.
Big Guy really enjoys cooking. Unfortunately in our roles in life, he doesn't get much chance. Weekends are a time for him to play in our kitchen. It's so great to watch a man in my kitchen, pretty cool!
Our dinner the night prior was the most delicious Boeuf Bourguignon served with Mashed Potatoes. Lucky for us, we had leftovers. Big Guy decided to "dress up" the Mashed Potatoes with a bit of onion, chives, crispy bacon and cheddar cheese. They were SO GOOD - not a spoonful was left!
Big Guy's Mashed Party Potatoes
2 cups Leftover Mashed Potatoes (or make mashed potatoes, we added 3 russet potatoes, cooked)
1/2 onion, grated
4 slices bacon, cooked just crispy
2 Tablespoons chives, cut into small pieces
1/3 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup sour cream (if not added to Mashed potatoes originally)
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix together Mashed Potatoes, onion and sour cream. Add salt and pepper. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spread potato mixture in a 9 X 9 baking dish (or the appropriate size for your leftovers). Sprinkle cheese, bacon, and chives over top. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes.
