Loaded Mashed Potatoes

Loaded Mashed Potatoes are one of our families favorite side dishes for holidays. We love how easy they are to make and our family thinks they take us so long to prepare. A kitchen shortcut tip is that you can use refrigerated potatoes too. Regardless if you make your potatoes from scratch or not the family will be happy you made this recipe. We always serve this at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Make sure you put Loaded Mashed Potatoes on your menu this holiday season! Watch for many more recipes for this holiday season!

  1. I just ran across your blog on Mckmama’s blogfrog community! This recipe just make me stomach growl and me mouth water…Loaded Mashed Potatos for dinner? Why yes, I don’t mind if I do! 🙂

  2. This sounds really good. I have a question……you mean instant mashed potatoes out of a box right? Just mix the potato flakes with the sour cream or prepare the potatoes by following the directions on the box and them add the sour cream?
