Twice baked mashed potatoes

For our dinner party tonight I wanted good ole comfort food. With 6 guys eating I knew it had to be good but very filling and from scratch as these guys travel for work and dont always get a home cooked meal, so I wanted to make them a very filling meal. I paired our chicken cordon bleu with these fabulous mashed potatoes from Southern Cooking. They were A-MAZING! I am not a huge potato fan, but LOVED these.


***this picture is from Southern Cooking as I totally missed taking a pic with 6 hungry guys awaiting the food to be put on the table..they were gobbled up fast!!!****

Ingredients: This serves 6 but I made a recipe and half so the guys could have seconds:
1  (22-ounce) package frozen mashed potatoes-Regular mashed potatoes work here too
1/2  (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2  cup  sour cream
1/4  cup  chopped fresh chives
4  bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
1/2  teaspoon  seasoned pepper
1/4  teaspoon  salt
1/2  cup  (2 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese

Prepare potatoes according to package directions.
Stir in cream cheese and next 5 ingredients. Divide mixture evenly between 6 (6-ounce) lightly greased ramekins or custard cups. Sprinkle evenly with Cheddar cheese.
Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
Serve immediately!
*** You can also make this in a  2 qt. serving dish and serve it family style as I have done here. Cook a bit longer to heat all the way thru****

    Wow these sounds delicious I like that you don’t have to do them in the shell but get that flavor.
