I had some leftover canned pumpkin from my previous recipes: Nutella Swirled Pumpkin Bread and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, so I decided to make some mashed potatoes with the leftover pumpkin.

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.
Then I topped it with crispy bacon bits. I served it with the Parmesan garlic noodles and bacon-wrapped shrimp, it was so yummy and we all really enjoyed the dinner.

May I know , what is ” heavy cream ” known in Malaysia
I think it’s called heavy cream too.
When do i add the one can of pumkin? Its not mentioned.
It’s mentioned in “the remaining ingredients” in the Method. Basically, you combine the mashed potatoes with the rest of the ingredients specified in the recipe.
What do you have on top of potatoes? Looks like bacon and something else. Looks really good. I may be making this for Thanksgiving.
Yes bacon bits. I forgot to add that in the recipe. ;)
And what might that “something else” be? Maple syrup?
What do you mean by something else? Maple syrup is one of the ingredients in the recipe.
