As you can tell from the pictures, this golden-hued and perfectly baked Parmesan bacon pumpkin mashed potatoes is a great side dish for any occasions. It’s rich, cheesy and sweet, and goes well with any main dishes.
In fact, it was so good I didn’t mind to have it as a main entree!
I adapted this pumpkin mashed potatoes recipe from Steamy Kitchen. Since my son loves cheese and bacon, I topped the mashed potatoes with some Parmesan cheese and baked it.
