Sour Cream Buttermilk Mashed Potaoes with Bacon

47

There are mashed potatoes, and then there are "mashed potatoes." After you're done making these, they won't require anything else, not even butter on top, although I wouldn't put it past someone to do it...I would. These are great with meatloaf, chicken, pork. And what's not to like about mashed potatoes?

4
1 1/2 lbs russet or red skin potatoes
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup butter
1 tbsp. dried minced onion, optional
3 -4 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 tsp salt
You can either peel potatoes, or leave with skins on. Wash thoroughly and cut into large even pieces. Boil on medium in a large saucepan with 1 tsp salt added to the water, about 30-45 minutes. Drain potatoes with lid askew. Keep potatoes in pan. Add butter first and mash into the potatoes. Add remainder of ingredients, including the remaining tsp salt. If you like a little creamier potato, add a 1/4 cup regular milk.
