Bacon Mashed Potatoes

My boyfriend is a HUGE fan of bacon, as most men are. Not to mention, he always tells me that his favourite side is anything potato related so, this seemed ideal for him. This is a perfect side dish for any sort of meat entree & it's lightened up so, bonus!

Recipe from Eating Well dot com.

1 lb potatoes, cut into 1 inch chunks
2 slices center cut bacon
1/3 c 1% milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/3 c reduced fat sour cream

Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with 2 inches of water.
Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.
Reduce heat to medium, partially cover, & let potatoes cook for 10 - 12 minutes.
Drain & transfer to a large bowl.

Meanwhile, cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp.
Crumble when cool enough to handle.

Mash the potatoes, milk, salt, & pepper until the liquid is incorporated but potatoes are still chunky.
Fold in sour cream & bacon.
