"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!" — PbBelly

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 perfect...no changes necessary! YUM! YUM! YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
These are good but make sure you taste as you go, it would have been much too salty otherwise.
I made this with 5 lbs of potatoes. Don't double the Montreal seasoning if you are doing this or it will be too salty! Great flavor, not overly rich tasting. Love the peels left on.
