These mashed potatoes are so simple to make, it seems almost effortless. Plus, they use leftovers from breakfast that might otherwise go uneaten. If you're a bacon lover, chances are you have bacon on hand. It's an easy addition to breakfast and lunch (maybe you like to sprinkle it on a baked potato or layer it on a sandwich), but it can be a challenge to incorporate into dinner. Unless, of course, you add it to your mashed potatoes for a salty, savory twist on a classic side dish.
The combination of bacon, cheese and chives makes this a restaurant quality dish that no one will guess you whipped up in under 30 minutes!
