Tonight the hubby was planning on grilling steaks.  And, what goes better with steaks than potatoes?  I was planning on just going for my regular mashed red potatoes, but then hubby had the idea of adding garlic and bacon.  Um…genius!!!  I threw some extra ingredients into the bowl…and poof! Garlic-Bacon Mashed Red Potatoes were born!

This experiment turned out even better than I had ever hoped to expect.  Pretty sure I could eat these with every meal.  After eating these paired with roasted vegetables and the garlic butter covered steak, I was in a food coma for the rest of the night!

Garlic-Bacon Mashed Red Potatoes Ingredients

1.  Place the potatoes into a large pot, and fill with enough water to cover.  (I added some salt and dried, roasted minced garlic to the water for flavor) Bring to a boil and cook for about 10 minutes or until easily pierced with a fork.

2.  Drain the potatoes and add the butter.  Mash until the butter is melted.  Mix in the milk and garlic until smooth (you can use an electric mixer, but I just used a spoon for a little bit chunkier texture).  Stir in bacon.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

3.  Serve and enjoy!
