Loaded Mashed Potatoes (Paula Deen)

I got this from her magazine and let me tell you that these are amazing!! They were made by a firefighting chef, Mike Wathen, where she visited in Alabama. Here are the adjustments I made: red potaotes, light sour cream, light cheddar cheese, and turkey bacon. I actually just fried up the bacon and then crumbled it. Hubby and kids were raving about how these were the best mashed potatoes they have ever had!

Yummy yummy...what a lovely variation on a simple mash recipe!!
I used all low fat options,including weight watchers bacon and didn't feel that my taste buds were compromised in any way at all!! I didn't use the milk, as I felt that the consistency of my potatoes was great without it.
We loved this...and would certainly make it again.
Another top offering from you Sweets!! Thanks!!
