Celebrate #BaconLove with Homemade Bacon Mashed Taters {Recipe}

This post is written by the Experimental Mommy and brought to you by Winn-Dixie. All opinions remain 100% mine.

Do you know that the term “bring home the bacon” comes from a game of catching a greased pig at a county fair?  The winner took home the pig and literally brought home the bacon.  Now, I am no fan of fair games and I am fresh out of greased pigs so I took the easy way out by heading to my local Winn-Dixie.

Throughout the month of January, Winn-Dixie is celebrating everyone’s favorite food during their Bacon Event with bacon sampling, bacon recipes, and bacon sales. To join the fun, I thought I would share one of my family’s favorite bacon recipes, Homemade Bacon Mashed Taters.

What You Need:

  • 2lbs. washed red potatoes
  • 4 slices cooked bacon
  • 1/4 cup light sour cream
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • salt and pepper to taste

How to Make It:

  • Cut the red potatoes into quarters and boil for about 12-15 minutes.  Drain.

  • Add all ingredients, except bacon
  • Mash until mixed and consistent
  • Add bacon pieces and gently stir until mixed
  • Serve hot!
