Mom Maven’s Thoughts
Since I have never in my life made mashed potatoes from scratch, I made 6 cups of my favorite instant potatoes. With the price of bacon soaring out of my budget, I used a package of real bacon crumbles. Both of these tweaks, made this recipe even easier to make. I served the Loaded Potato Casserole with steak and salad. It was a huge hit for my family and it is a recipe I will be making again and again.
