Mashed Potatoes with Bacon

Updated January 07, 2021

Mashed Potatoes with Bacon

"In version I, with bacon dices evenly spread out, the crispy action is something fresh to go with the smoothness and moistness that mashed potatoes can bring. In version II, with small little bacon pieces as a meaty topping, our mashed potatoes are totally brought to the next level of elegancy."



  • 6 potatoes (about 1 1/2 lbs)
  • 3 slices of bacon
  • 1 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 2 oz butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • sea salt and ground black pepper
  • chives (optional)
  1. Steam unpeeled potatoes for 20 minutes or until they are fork tender. If you choose boiling, peel and cut the potatoes into cubes beforehand. Mash them well in a large bowl.

  2. Heat up a nonstick skillet over high heat and place bacon slices in. Cook each side for 3 minutes or until crispy. Transfer to a paper towel to soak up the fat.

  3. Add onions in the skillet and use the bacon fat to cook the onions until translucent.

  4. Turn off the heat and use the remaining heat of the skillet to melt butter.

  5. Add melted butter, milk, a pinch of salt and black pepper into the mashed potatoes and toss until even. Adjust the flavor by adding more salt or pepper if necessary. Dish the mashed potatoes.

  6. Smash the bacon into small little pieces. (I used my food chopper to do the job.) Sprinkle the bacon pieces over the potatoes.

This makes me think of twice baked potatoes without the cheese added. I opted for version two because my family loves mashed potatoes and this makes a little more. It is tasty. I also sprinkled some cheddar cheese on top too. Cause I love cheese. I didn't add a bunch, maybe a couple ounces shredded. Yummy!

What a great idea to add Bacon bits to your mashed potatoes. I would have them crispy. I think this would add such a nice flavor to the potatoes. I love mashed potatoes. My son won't eat them though. I am sure that if I make them this way I can entice him to eat some!

Yummm! That is the very best way to describe this mashed potato recipe. Crispy bacon is good in just about everything (in my opinion, anyway) and the onions and chives add a wonderful dimension to the overall flavor. The only change we made was to add a little garlic and to use crme fraiche (a type of soured cream) in place of the milk. Absolutely delicious!

Ok, who doesn't love bacon, and potatoes with onions are some of the most tasty things I have ever eaten. This makes me crave dinner because recipes like this are hearty and full of tasty bits. Sometimes, I add a dash of garlic or cumin to my potatoes to add an earthy tone that switches up the same old potato flavor. Have you ever tried that with this potato recipe?
