An easy twist on the classic Thanksgiving mashed potatoes.

Cheese, Bacon, Ranch, Potato, Brummel & Brown, Yogurt, Healthy, Thanksgiving, Recipe
4 large baking potatoes
1 cup milk
1 Tablespoon ranch seasoning mix
8 strips of bacon, cooked
1/2 cup Brummel & Brown
1 cup cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Bake potatoes until fully cooked. (Peeling and boiling potatoes will work as well. To save time I cooked mine using the baked potato setting on my microwave.) Cut potatoes in half and scoop out inside of potatoes. In a mixing bowl combine potatoes with milk, ranch seasoning, salt, pepper and Brummel & Brown. Mix until creamy.  (Add more milk if needed.) Crumble bacon into small pieces and fold into potato mixture.
Add potatoes to ramekins or a casserole dish and top with cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 degrees until desired browning is achieved.
