ingredients

  • 1 pound new or baby potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 slices bacon
  • 1/3 cup low-fat milk or buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 scallions, sliced

directions

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

Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp. Drain on a paper towel. Crumble when cool enough to handle.

Mash the potatoes, milk (or buttermilk), salt and pepper with a potato masher until the liquid is incorporated but some chunks of potato still remain. Fold in the sour cream, scallions and the crumbled bacon.
