Bacon Mashed Potatoes


From EatingWell:  March/April 2011

Serve these bacon-studded chunky mashed potatoes with grilled steak or chicken.

4 servings, about 3/4 cup each | Active Time: 25 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes



  1. Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with 2 inches of water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cook, partially covered, until tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp. Drain on a paper towel. Crumble when cool enough to handle.
  3. Mash the potatoes, milk (or buttermilk), salt and pepper with a potato masher until the liquid is incorporated but some chunks of potato still remain. Fold in sour cream, scallions and the crumbled bacon.
