Bacon Scallion Mashed Potatoes like Applebee's

"We've been messing with this recipe to get it right and I think we have it. The taste with the bacon and scallions makes these potatoes rich in flavor and probably higher in calories than most of us want to look at...but then don't you have to enjoy food!"

    Yummy potatoes. They were creamy and I loved the garlic, bacon, and green onions to kick them up a notch. Thanks for sharing.

    I absolutely loved this recipe! I was a bit lazy and threw my scallions in at the very end and let the heat of the potatoes warm them up. I also used plain yogurt in place of the sour cream, and skim milk which worked out fine. LOVED it with the bacon. This might be a new favourite! Thanks!
