Plain old mashed potatoes are jazzed up by adding spinach, Parmesan, bacon bits and garlic, then served with a pepper gravy. These mash potates will go well with almost anything.
My sister and I made this for a Christmas dinner (with roast and sauteed portobello mushrooms), and it was fantastic. The only change we made was to use real bacon, because we had some on hand. The dish is very colorful, very flavorful, and incredibly unique -- but not at all difficult to make and seems impossible to mess up. I will definitely make this again and again. - 26 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have never liked spinach, but once I tried this, I just fell in love! I always serve it with emerals seasoning! This is the best side dish I've ever made,it goes good with just about every dinner, and when I brought it to my sister she made it 4 days in a row! This is a great recipe, and I recommend it for every beginner in cooking, becuase it is good, filling, and uniqe. - 21 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I used real bacon instead of bacon bits and skipped the pepper gravy. It was good, and I'll make it again. I'll roast the garlic next time. Thanks for sharing! - 11 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
