I was just thinking of what to do with the Russet potatoes which I had just bought… Potato Salad? Wedges? Or just simply mashed? Mashed Potatoes are great, and I will choose it over French Fries!!
I really wanted to take this dish to the next level in terms of flavour and colours. I am so happy to share it with you as it is indeed an incredibly irresistible dish. It is not just fluffy and light but by adding in the foursome; sour cream, bacon, cheese and chives, it has given it more flavour and a creamy and rich texture.
This dish is so simple and easy, and the best part is you can prepare it a day ahead and bake it on the day that you want to serve it!
