Cooking with Kitch Coquette
Bacon Mashed Potatoes
What You Need
4 extra large potatoes that are cut and boiled soft and drained
1 stick of butter
8 oz cream cheese
8 oz sour cream
2 tablespoons of heavy cream
1/2 tsp. of salt
6 slices of cooked bacon (I just cook mine in the microwave when I am out of time).
Preferably a hand-held electric mixer, but a potato masher will also work
What to Do:
1. Put all ingredients (except for the bacon) into the pot with the potatoes.
2. Use your hand-held electric mixer (or your potato masher) to mash the potatoes and incorporate the ingredients. If you use an electric mixer, note that it is possible to over-mix the mashed potatoes, stop mixing once you get the consistency you like for mashed potatoes.
3. Use a pair of scissors to cut the bacon into small pieces right into the pot with the mashed potatoes.
