3 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes (about 12 medium)
1 tablespoon salt
1 cup low-fat milk, warmed
½ cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
3 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
2 scallions, sliced
Black or white pepper to taste
Peel potatoes, if desired, and cut into 2-inch chunks. Place the potatoes and salt in a large heavy saucepan. Add cold water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and cook until potatoes are very tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain well.
Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl. Mash with a potato masher, an electric hand-held mixer or by working through a ricer.
Stir milk, cheese, bacon, scallions and pepper into the potatoes.
Make Ahead Tip: Transfer to a slow cooker, cover and keep on the “warm” setting for up to 2 hours.
