Nigella Lawson's Cheddar Mashed Potatoes With Bacon and Apples 11.21.11
Well, I feel silly.
I took the time to take photos of everything... except these. Unless you count the "in process" shot above as I lazily allow the kitchenaid to do all of the work.
BUT, these are outstanding! Bacon!!! Bacon! Bacon! Bacon!
And to top that off, the apples are actually cooked in the bacon fat!!!
One of those OMG recipes!
You can find the recipe on the Chew website (Click HERE). It's not terribly difficult, just a pretty standard tater recipe, except...
You fry up a bunch of bacon....
While that is frying, core and peel 2 granny smith apples, diced
When the bacon is done, set it aside and dump the apples in the bacon! When they are soft (and have absorbed all that delicious bacon grease, add some onions until they are soft as well.
Add to your cooked potatoes, add some grated cheddar, add milk, salt pepper and mash as you like (long time for smooth, or shorter time for the preferred lumpy!
Serve with Turkey, Dressing, Green bean Casserole and fresh made Rosemary Bread!
