Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Bacon and Chives

10 min
20 min


  • 1 package Coleman Natural bacon, cooked until crisp, drained, and crumbled
  • 2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 8 garlic cloves (whole)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup cream (or milk or chicken stock)
  • 1/4 cup fresh chives (or green onions), minced


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.
