Loaded Mashed Potato Bake

I decided to try something new as a side dish this Labor Day. I was in the middle of baking a Strawberry Rhubarb pie when the idea to create a bacon lattice top for a mashed potato dish would be not only delicious, but also a bit of a show stopper!

The mayo tempers the sweetness and the relish adds a vinegary tang. Add bacon and caramelized onions toContinue reading “Copycat Animal Fries”
