Side Dish Exploration ::: Mash Potatoes with Bacon bits

Being mash potatoes lovers wherever we go ''mash potatoes as side please~''

On 28 Nov 2010, after our relaxation afternoon at Belle Mare beach in Mauritius, being unable to decide where to head to for dinner, we went home to make made Baked BBQ Honey Chicken Wings, & Garlic Bread to go with instant mushroom soup. Not forgetting our carbohydrates, we made mash potatoes with bacon bits!

200g washed potatoes
1/4 tablespoon Salt
10g butter
35g hot milk
Salt to taste
A dash of pepper
Bacon bits

  1. Put potatoes in a pot with enough water to cover them. Add 1/4 tablespoon salt. Bring to a boil, and simmer until potatoes are tender. Test by poking it with a fork.
  2. Drain the potatoes and put aside to cool for a bit before peeling the potatoes.
  3. Place all the peeled potatoes in a flat pan. Add butter, hot milk and mash the potatoes over low heat until a smooth texture is achieved. Then add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Dish out and serve with bacon bits.

The Reason we actually used bacon bits to make our mash potato dish special is because we both are crazy about Bacon!!! :)
