You can never have too many potato recipes. It's such a staple in meals. This recipe came from PioneerWoman and don't worry unduly about the amounts. A good guess if good enough. Guaranteed to please husbands and kids. If you like this recipe, see others at my website:

    to large russet potatoes, peeled and cut up for boiling

How to Make Treasure Hunt Mashed Potatoes


  1. When you put on the potatoes, fry up the bacon in one inch pieces until crispy. Drain on paper toweling and set aside
  2. Boil potatoes until fork tender and drain. Add the butter and sour cream, and then mash. Add salt and pepper.
  3. Chop up the scallions. Add them with the bacon. Stir gently. Throw the fried onions on top and serve. (I don't stir in the fried onions to keep them crispy.)
