- Instead of melting the cheese first, you can add it to the hot mashed potatoes (along with everything else) and finish the dish off in the oven or microwave. Figure on about 15-20 minutes in the oven or 2-3 minutes in the microwave, stirring halfway through.
- Grated Cheddar cheese may be substituted for the Velveeta. Though Velveeta does result in a creamier dish.
- I personally detest Miracle Whip in anything but have no problem with low-fat mayo so that's what I used. You can use any type of mayo (or mayonnaise like product) you wish.
- For a little kick replace a couple of tablespoons of the mayonnaise with creamy horseradish.
4oz Velveeta Cheese, cubed
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
3-4 slices of bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
salt and pepper taste
chives or green onions for garnish
In a medium saucepan, melt Velveeta over medium heat. Stir in mayo, sour cream and mustard, set aside. Mash hot potatoes with a potato masher or mixer. Blend in cheese mixture. Season with salt and pepper as desired and stir in crumbled bacon. Garnish with chives or green onions and additional crumbled bacon as desired. Serve warm.
