Ingredients
  • 3 pounds Red skin potatoes
  • 1 cup Sour cream your brand
  • 1/4 cup Heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons Unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons Fresh parsley chopped
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 3/4 cup Freshly grated extra sharp white cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated yellow sharp cheddar cheese
  • 10 slices Hickory smoked thick sliced bacon chopped and divided equally
  • 1 bunch green scallions thinly sliced
Instructions
  1. Wash and scrub red skin potatoes, remove as much or little of the red skin with a potato peeler as desired (I sometimes don’t remove it to add a pretty color)
  2. Cut potatoes into small pieces, place in a large enough saucepan to hold 3 pounds of potatoes and cover with water. Place on medium high heat till potatoes become fork tender, drain in a colander to remove all water.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  4. Place drained potatoes back in a large saucepan add 1 cup of your brand of sour cream, 1/4 of a cup heavy cream, 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter, 2 tablespoons of fresh parsley, and season with kosher salt and pepper to your own taste.
  5. Using a potato masher begin mashing potatoes and incorporating mentioned ingredients together. (I like my mashed potatoes to be a little chunky to add additional texture.) Once you have the desired consistency add 3/4 of a cup of white cheddar to potatoes and 1/2 of equally divided chopped bacon and stir ingredients in.
  6. Place in glass oven-safe baking dish large enough to retain ingredients, about 3 quarts or 9×14 in size. (I do not use cooking spray and have never had an issue with mine sticking, you may add if desired) top with 1/2 cup of freshly grated yellow sharp cheese and remained of bacon.
  7. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 10 minutes, remove from oven and top with sliced green scallions before placing on the dinner table.
