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.)
