The best parts of a loaded baked potato and traditional mashed potatoes all in one dish! Your family will beg you to make this recipe again and again!
I'm a big fan of potato dishes. Growing up, they were a staple at the dinner table. When it comes to potatoes, I can't pick a favorite dish because I love them all ... but, this Loaded Mashed Potatoes recipe has to rank somewhere near the top! I mean, what's not to love about a combination of loaded baked potatoes and creamy mashed potatoes?! Talk about pure comfort food!
I think any good recipe requires the use of quality ingredients, don't you?! My family really loves Shamrock Farms. Their sour cream and milk make these Loaded Mashed Potatoes the best ever!
I love knowing exactly where my milk comes from, and Shamrock Farms’ real, working dairy farm is open to the public for tours! So you can see firsthand their state-of-the-art facilities and learn how they keep their cows happy and healthy. Every Shamrock Farms product begins with pure, wholesome, nutritious milk with no added hormones. All of Shamrock Farms milk goes through rigorous purity testing, and is cold packaged and shipped from their Phoenix manufacturing facility to arrive fresh, fast and delicious.
I also love supporting a company as committed to the community as Shamrock Farms. This holiday season, they’ve selected me as one of their partners helping get milk to families in need through the Great American Milk Drive!
