Bacon-Spinach Mashed Potatoes
These potatoes are a one-pot wonder—this recipe is very flavorful and simple to make. Serve these mashed potatoes as a delicious side dish with the Grilled Steaks with Blue Cheese Butter.
Sauté bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until crisp. Drain bacon on a paper-towel-lined plate.
Boil potatoes and garlic in a large pot of salted water until potatoes are tender when pierced, about 15 minutes. Just before draining, stir in spinach to wilt. Drain potatoes, garlic, and spinach; return to pot and cook, stirring constantly, 1–2 minutes to evaporate excess moisture.
Add cream, butter, and bacon. Coarsely crush potatoes with a masher; season with salt.
