DIRECTIONS

  • Place potatoes into a large pot and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, about 8-10 minutes, depending on the size of the potato cubes.
  • Meanwhile, fry bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until evenly browned and crisp. Remove bacon from the skillet to drain on paper towels.
  • Add the onions to the bacon grease in the skillet and fry until tender, stirring often. Drain excess grease.
  • When the potatoes are done, drain the water out of pot and mash. Mix in the buttermilk (or the buttermilk/whole milk combination) until you get your desired consistency.
  • Crumble in the bacon and stir in the onions. You can also stir in between 1-2 tablespoons of the bacon grease if you like. Mix together and serve.
