In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Loaded Whipped Potatoes. The inspiration for this recipe comes from a trip to Malone's Restaurant in Lexington, KY for lunch, where Betty ordered a Loaded Baked Potato. With this dish, you may spoon it out to serve it, so that each individual gets as much or as little as they want.

4. In a large bowl, place cooked drained potatoes and season with sea salt to taste.

5. Add butter and whip, using medium or high speed of electric mixer until potato mixture is smooth.

6. Add enough of the reserved milk from cooked potatoes, and whip to desired consistency.

7. Fold in sour cream, freshly grated black peppercorns and grated cheddar cheese.

8. Sprinkle chopped green onion and bacon on top.

SERVING
