These are so yummy and the recipe served 4 of us. The mixture of all the ingredients was great and my kids loved the bacon and the amount of cheese. Very cheesy! I enjoyed this with Carthagenian Flank Steak and carrots. It's a great dish to make in the summer because you cook the potatoes in the microwave and don't heat up the house. I will make these again. Made for Went to the Market tag game. Thanks HokiesLady! :)

This recipe was recommended by Chef #383346. We used leftover Make-Ahead Mashed/Smashed Potatoes, heated it up, added low-fat cheddar cheese and cooked corn, then sprinkled parsley over top. The bacon over top would be exceptional in this recipe we are certain, but we are trying to eat healthier, so for this reason we omitted it. I have always put my corn over my mashed potatoes on my plate, but with cheese and corn all mixed in together, its an added yummy! Thanks for sharing. :)

This was good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I used canned corn instead of frozen (personal preference), I used cheddar cheese and did not add the optional bacon. My hubby and sons always mix their corn with their potatoes so they were thrilled when it was already done for them LOL.

Very hearty, tasty potato dish! I served it with bbq ribs, broccoli & biscuits. I omitted the bacon since I was serving with a meat dish.

I had never made microwaved mashed potatoes before. I love this recipe if only for the method. But tasty too!

We enjoyed this tonight with our steak, I steamed the corn in my multi tiered steamer with the steamed vegetables and the DH mashed, just felt that there was something missing which we couldn't put our finger on but what took it to 5 stars was the wonders of wonders that the DM ate up her mashed potato which she left to last and raved about it after the meal. Thank you HokiesLady, made for ZAAR Cookbook tag game.

I made this exactly as written, except I halved the recipe. I thought I might need to reduce the microwave time for the potatoes, but after testing at 10 minutes, I didn't need to. I didn't add the bacon to try and reduce the fat content (even though I had a cooked piece in the fridge!). I really enjoyed the potato, corn and cheese mix! This is so easy to make and so tastey! Thanks for sharing, Hokies!

Yum! I boiled my potatoes instead of using the microwave. The bacon didn't make it into the potatoes. The kids apparently thought it was an appetizer! Next time, though!
