Montreal Steak Seasoned Mashed Potatoes

Recipe by  

"Quick, delicious mashed potatoes. I was craving 'loaded mashed potatoes' like they serve at some of the chain restaurants but was tired, busy and in a hurry so in an effort to eliminate some steps I tried seasoning my mashed potatoes with Montreal steak seasoning (my favorite slow cooker seasoning!) and threw in some cream cheese and shredded cheese for a super easy treat that the whole family raved over. Next time I will double the recipe so I can have leftovers for my lunch bucket!"

  2. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher; mash in butter and cream cheese. Stir in milk, bacon bits, Colby-Jack cheese, and steak seasoning. Season to taste with salt.

Potatoes loaded with cheese and bacon is incredibly delicious so I knew this recipe was already off to a good start. It was the addition of the Montreal Steak Seasoning, however, that caught my eye and made this really interesting. Great addition, although I wasn't comfortable using the full amount called for and cut it in half - neither did I use any additional salt. Hubs and I agreed both were a good call. I added green onion which these potatoes seemed to cry out for and it added great, fresh flavor as well as color. These potatoes, alongside of "Sunday Meatloaf," also from this site, made for a perfect "comfort food" meal.

I had to leave out the cream cheese (someone used my little bit I saved for this recipe...) and used cheddar as my cheese. I used a "cheapy" steak seasoning, and am wondering if this impacted the recipe in a negative way. Nevertheless, we weren't fond of said seasoning in our potatoes. We'll keep it on our meats. Thank you anyway.

Very good. Tastes like a loaded baked potato without the baked potato part. I kept calling them baked potatoes, actually. These are very rich, so definitely not an everyday side, but nice every once in a while. I left out the salt bc with the steak seasoning, bacon, and cheese, I figured it would be plenty salty. I am so glad I left out the salt, as it was perfect without. After eating, I glanced at the steak seasoning jar and noticed the first ingredient is salt--so test it first before adding the salt. If you think it's not salty enough, then go for it. Very filling and good with the Montreal Peppered Steak that is also on this site. Thanks for the recipe!

I doubled this and ended up adding more butter. I didn't measure. I just added. I'm really glad I tasted the potatoes before I added more salt after I added the steak seasoning. It would have been WAY too salty if I hadn't. These potatoes are different. I'm not sure I like them alone, but they might be good with the Bottom Round Roast with Onion Gravy. I'll update after we have dinner and try them together. EDITED: My husband remarked on how this tasted like a steakhouse baked potato and how he loved it. Just for that, I'm making it again. Thank you for the recipe. It went well with the roast.

I cut the recipe in half for my family and these turned out sooo yummy. They're quite rich and not for the dieter but definitely amazing on a chilly winter night. I served them with a pork roast and brocccoli/cauliflower casserole.

WOW! This may now be my new favorite way to have mashed potatoes. I must admit, I was a little scared to put the entire 2 tablespoons of steak seasoning in there, but decided to just go for it and I am sooooo glad I did! These were absolutely changes necessary! YUM! YUM! YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Bacon and cheese will add wonderful flavors to any dish. I followed the recipe only adding 1T of Montreal Steak Seasoning, instead of 2T and it turns out it added a real nice flavor to the mashed potatoes. I also left out the salt since the steak seasoning, bacon, and cheese was already salty. The mashed potatoes were rich, creamy, filling and flavorful! I served this as a side dish with, “Sunday Meat Loaf,” and “Creamy Mushroom Peas,” also from this website.

Great! Jammed packed with flavor. Took the advice of other reviews and cut the amount of Montreal Steak seasoning in half and omitted the salt. I added 1/2 tsp. of minced garlic to the potatoes when they were boiling and also put 1/2 tsp of minced garlic in the potatoe when they were mashed. Added a bit more bacon and chopped green onions. The green onion gave it a very nice crunch. Excellent way to serve mashed potatoes. This is a must try!!
