Mashed Potato Skins

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Scoutie

Very tasty...and easy too! These taste like fried potato skins, but they are boiled instead. Buttermilk replaces the sour cream so they are more healthy than the regular ones. This is from Rachel Ray. Hope you enjoy!

Excellent mashed potatoes. Loved the flavor the bacon and buttermilk gave to the potatoes. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
