As you can see, this recipe is full of flavor with key ingredients your family already loves. I use gold potatoes or russets because they are starchy and break down better for a creamier mash. Adding buttermilk and chip dip to the mashed potatoes creates an amazingly creamy and flavorful mashed potato. Adding cheeses, bacon, chives, and parsley tops this recipe in flavor.
SMITH’s French Onion Dip is the star of this recipe, it is amazing how a small amount of chip dip can turn ordinary mashed potatoes into extraordinary! It adds an unexpected flavor that is scrumptious.
SMITH’s Buttermilk adds while making the mashed potatoes extra creamy. You’ll use less buttermilk than you would cream, milk, and butter in ordinary mashed potato recipes. I like buttermilk because it lends a natural creaminess that is less in fat than milk or cream.
At this point, you could serve these mashed potatoes as is and get rave reviews from all who enjoy them. The combination of French onion chip dip, buttermilk and garlic in mashed potatoes is unbelievable. However, continue on to create the ultimate mashed potato dish! This recipe makes 5 cups of mashed potatoes.
If you are using leftover mashed potatoes for this recipe, simply stir the chip dip into the mashed potatoes and proceed with the recipe. This might be the best recipe for leftover mashed potatoes ever!
Stir in cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese, chives, parsley, and bacon. Next, mound the mashed potato mixture into a prepared cupcake pan. This recipe makes 20 Chip Dip Mashed Potato Cups at about 20 carbohydrates each. Expect people to want at least 2! Serve with SMITH’s Sour Cream, any is fine but I prefer their All Natural kind because it is extra creamy.
You have two choices now. You can top with sour cream and chives or you can add additional cheese and bacon too. They are tasty either way.
For Thanksgiving, I suggest keeping it simple with sour cream and fresh chives.
You are guaranteed bigger smiles if you add the bacon and cheese to the sour cream and chives! Either way, the Chip Dip Mashed Potato Cups is sure to become the most requested dish from now on!
