Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Bacon and Chives
1 Place the potatoes and garlic in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer, and cook until tender, about 20 minutes.
2 When cooked, press the potatoes and garlic through a potato ricer into a medium bowl.
3 Add the butter, cream, salt, pepper, most of the chives, and most of the crumbled bacon, reserving a bit of bacon and chives for garnish. Gently stir everything together until combined, taking care not to overwork the potatoes.
4 Spoon potatoes into a casserole dish and top with reserved chives and bacon; serve hot.
