Bacon and green-onion mashed potatoes
2.5 pounds of potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
4 slices of bacon, cut into 1-inch chunks
½ tsp. fresh minced garlic
¼ tsp. paprika
2 green onions, thinly sliced
4 oz. cream cheese (I'll use light)
¼ c. butter
¼ c. skim milk
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Cook the potatoes until tender. Drain and return to the pot.
While potatoes are cooking, cook the bacon until crisp. Drain and reserve.
When the potatoes are cooked and drained, add cream cheese, butter, seasonings and milk to the pot. Mash the potatoes until creamy and mostly smooth. Mix in bacon and green onions, season with salt and pepper.
*The original recipe suggests
Yukon gold potatoes but I’m using potatoes. Idaho
*Your father said this recipe sounds good. So, I'm making it for him tonight along with a small pre-marinated pork roast.
