Recipe: Cheesy Baked Mashed Potatoes with Bacon, Sour Cream and Chives

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!

Hi! My name is Josephine Go. I blog at in a segment called Mummy’s Kitchen. I love to use fresh and natural ingredients in my cooking to promote healthy eating. Some of my recipes may not be in line with the traditional methods of cooking to the extent that some of the ingredients are different, but hopefully new recipes are being created in my style. I certainly hope that what I do will help guide kitchen first-timers on how to cook their first meal as well as further equip kitchen veterans with new recipes. My loving husband and two wonderful children are my best guinea pigs and critics. They have enjoyed (or endured) the food that has been served to them for all these years. Mind you, I did not know how to cook or ever knew that I could cook till I got married. So there is hope for everyone. If I can cook, you can cook. You will not know how good or talented you are until you put your hand in the plough.
