i really wasn't a fan of this combination - maybe would like the pumpkin better mixed with sweet potatoes.

We loved these mashed potatoes with an pumpkin twist! I used regular low sodium bacon and vadalia onion puree. Yummy is the best description! Thanks for posting Toni!

Love it - we had a pumpkin left over from Halloween - that my husband painted rather than carve so I made this today - the family loves it!

great recipe, it tasted great even without the onion and the bacon. I even substituted evaporated skim milk with regular 0% milk. It still tasted great. thanks for posting.

I regularly do mashed potato & pumpkin together but haven't done it this way before. I love the bacon, onion addition, it really jazzes up what would otherwise be a quite plain vegie side. Great idea, one I will make again.

I used canne pumpkin, so it came out much creamier. I left out the bacon bcz I didn't want the added fat and then ended up using whipping cream! Next time, in summer, I'll try it with real pumpkin and add the bacon. And I'll puree the onions so the kids can't even see them. They wouldn't eat it bcz of the onions!

This one'es been sitting in my saved recipes for a while now, so I decided to give it a try in conjunction with a dinner to welcome the Fall season. Everyone was very skeptical at first. Even my dad insisted that I had to go and buy a box in instant mashed potatoes, in case everyone didn't like these. Let me tell you...we didn't need them. Everyone loved these potatoes. This is definently a keeper!

I was given a whole pumpkin so when I spotted this recipe I figured it a great way to use up some of my pumpkin. Very tasty and looks great.

These were great, although I didn't make them exactly as specified, so I won't rate your recipe. I substitued frozen pumpkin puree, since I didn't have any fresh pumpkin, used regular bacon and regular milk. However, the result was spectacularly delicious! This is my family's new favorite variation on mashed potatoes! Thanks!
