How to Make Bacon and Cheese Loaded Mashed Potatoes

Then, drain them and return them to the pot. Add all of the remaining ingredients and mash until your preferred texture.
This recipe will make a batch large enough for 6-8 people or to have lots for leftovers! Feel free to add more cheese, bacon and sour cream when you serve them. Enjoy!
