Loaded Mashed Potatoes

An incredibly decadent side dish, loaded mashed potatoes includes bacon, cream, and three kinds of cheese all baked in a camp oven.

The recipe uses dehydrated potatoes which is a great option for the outdoors as it is easy to transport and store while camping. If desired you can make the mashed potatoes from fresh potatoes.

The three kinds of cheese each add an element to the dish, the mozzarella the gooeyness, the cheddar the depth, and the parmesan a salty element. Variations of the cheeses are the quickest way to change the flavor profile.

This recipe was cooked on an Aquaforno as an example of the wide range of meals that can be cooked on it.

Ingredients

6 slices of bacon, diced

1 brown onion diced

2 cups dehydrated potato

boiling water, as required

1/2 cup cream

salt and pepper, to taste

1 cup shredded cheddar

1/2 cup mozzarella

1/4 cup parmesan

Equipment

skillet

square baking tray

Recipe Directions

  1. Light the Aquaforno, or prepare equipment to fry in a skillet, boil water, and preheat a camp oven to 355 degrees F (180 degrees C).

  2. Heat a skillet to medium heat then add the diced bacon and onion. Cook until the onion is translucent, put aside until needed.

  3. In a large bowl add the dehydrated potato then start to add the hot water until a thick but smooth mashed potato is created.

  4. Add to the mashed potato the cream, salt, and pepper, then stir to well combine. 

  5. Add three quarters of the cooked bacon and onion, as well as three quarters of the cheddar, mozzarella, and parmesan. Lightly fold through the mashed potato then transfer to the square baking tray.

  6. Evenly spread the remaining bacon, onion, cheddar, mozzarella, and parmesan across the top of the potato bake then add to the preheated camp oven.

  7. Cook the loaded mashed potatoes for 20 minutes or until all the cheeses on the top are melted. Serve immediately.
