I absolutely LOVE mashed potatoes. Yet, I usually stray away from making them as a result of the copious amounts of fattening substances that are used in its making. But, since Christmas only comes once a year, I figured I could use that as my excuse to make unhealthy foods.
This recipe for Bacon Mashed Potatoes With Dill adds to the unhealthiness factor with the addition of bacon; however, the bacon adds a nice twist, especially when paired with dill (a spice I would have previously never thought to use!).
Step 1: Peel Potatoes and Slice Into
Two Inch Chunks
Step 2: Cook Bacon; Reserve Liquid
Step 3: Add Salt, Sugar, Pepper
and Cider Vinegar to Liquid
Step 4: Cook Potatoes; Mash Them and
Add Fat Mixture, Cooked Bacon and Dill
This was definitely an indulgent mashed potato recipe. Although I felt exceptionally full after, I would consider making this recipe again and perhaps adding garlic and a few other spices for additional flavor (in another 365 days of course!).
