Loaded Potato Bombs ~ Grab your Simply Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Load Them with Bacon and Cheese!
I’m assuming all of you have, by now, figured out I’m all about easy. Once in a great while I’ll throw out a recipe with more than four simple steps or more than a handful of ingredients, but really that’s far and few between.
I’m a working mom with a family and a blog. Enough said right? My life is not glamorous and I’m not out to show you how amazing I am by making 5 course meals and impressing everyone. I’m here to show you simple can be amazing. Simple can be impressive! If I can impressive people with a recipe with four steps and handful of ingredients why oh why would I go through the trouble of making a super complicated recipe instead?
More or less….I’m practical. I love being in the kitchen, but I love being with my family too. I try to make recipes and meals work with my lifestyle not me work for them! I’m sure you’re all nodding your head in agreement by now right?

I also have a tiny bit of a confession to make today. I’ve never actually made homemade mashed potatoes. Insert. Gasp. Now. I’m scared of them. I’ve heard horror stories of them turning out with lumps and bumps or runny and well I just don’t have time for that business!
Insert Simply Potatoes now. This my friends will be your new favorite “cheat”. I know it is mine! Amazing light and fluffy potatoes. Simply Potatoes are fresh potatoes that are refrigerated, but never frozen or dehydrated. Made only with real ingredients. Plus easy to prepare. My first recipe I tried with them was Cheesy Garlic Bacon Mashed Potatoes and they were to die for. You know what’s pretty cool though? You don’t need a recipe to enjoy these! They are great on their owns. My favorite is the Garlic Mashed Potatoes because I adore anything garlic!
Today I’m sharing these amazing Loaded Potatoes Bombs. They are individual portions of mashed potatoes loaded with bacon, cheese and garlic! Sound familiar? When I find a good them I just go with it! I love how the edges are a little crisp and inside it’s fluffy mashed potatoes
