Awesome Smashed Red Potatoes

Recipe by  

"This recipe of hand-mashed red potatoes with skins with a flavor mixture of bacon bits, cheese, and French onion rings could be served as a main dish if you are a potato-lover like me. This is the only way my family will allow me to serve potatoes in our house. The amounts I have suggested are only guidelines; you will adjust these over time to your taste."

Mr. LTH, the potato connoisseur at our house, deemed these "delicious", without prompting. I'd prefer them with a little roasted garlic and a good amount of sea salt, but enjoyed them, too. I just can't make myself use Velveeta, so I used real shredded cheddar in its place. THANKS for the recipe!

Sorry but I didn't much like this. It was very heavy. I guess I should have known that from looking at the recipe. Won't make it again.
