Baked mashed potatoes topped with parmesan cheese, bacon, and pumpkin are called Parmesan Bacon Pumpkin Mashed Potatoes. Sweet, salty, and cheesy all in one bite!
It was time to use up some of the canned pumpkins I had leftover after making Nutella Swirled Pumpkin Bread & Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.
This golden-hued and precisely cooked Parmesan bacon pumpkin mashed potatoes are a terrific side dish for any occasion, as evidenced by the photos. You can serve it with any main dish because it’s creamy, sweet, and full of cheese.
It was so delicious that I didn’t mind having it as the main course!
Steamy Kitchen’s recipe for pumpkin mashed potatoes inspired me to create my own version. I baked the mashed potatoes and sprinkled some Parmesan cheese on top for my kid, who loves cheese and bacon.
Crispy bacon bits were then added to the top. When I served it with Parmesan garlic noodles and bacon-wrapped shrimp, my family loved it.
