Bacon + Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
In a medium pot, bring to a boil:
4 cups water
When water has come to a boil, add:
3 Yukon potatoes, peeled and coarsely chopped
Boil until tender.
Drain water. Add to the potatoes:
3 cloves roasted garlic
2 pieces bacon, crumbled
1/4 cup whole milk
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons cream cheese
salt + pepper to taste
Use potato masher to mash to desired consistency (I like my mashed potatoes left just a little chunky).
Serve with hearty meat dish, such as Meatloaf, Pot Roast, Braised Lamb Shanks, or Stuffed Loin of Pork.
