Blue Cheese Bacon Mashed Potatoes6-8 medium golden (Yukon) potatoes
2-3 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
2/3 cup butter
1/4 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste
1 T. parsley (or chives)
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
1/4 cup sour cream
Place potatoes in large stock pot. Cover with cold water by at least 2 inches. Salt water and cook on high, slightly covered, for about 45 minutes. Test with fork at 30 minutes to determine tenderness. When fork pierces easily, turn potatoes off.
Drain water from potatoes and then sprinkle liberally with salt. Add remaining ingredients. Whip well with hand mixer until smooth. Stir edges with large spoon and mix again on high speed.
Variation - make potatoes and add blue cheese and bacon crumbles on individual servings as desired. Serves 4.
