Jazz up those mashed potatoes by adding in savory bacon and sliced onions for some out-of-this-world flavor.

How to Make It

Step 1

Arrange potatoes in a microwave-safe dish; cover tightly with plastic wrap. Cut a 1/2-inch slit in plastic. Microwave at HIGH 8 minutes or until tender; transfer to a bowl. Microwave buttermilk in a microwave-safe cup 30 seconds; pour buttermilk and oil over potatoes. Mash until mostly smooth.

Step 2

While potatoes cook, heat bacon in a skillet over medium heat; cook until crisp, turning frequently. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate; cool and crumble. Add chopped white onion and sugar to drippings in pan; cook 5 minutes. Stir bacon, onion, salt, and pepper into potatoes. Sprinkle with chopped green onions. Serve potatoes immediately.

I rarely give 5 stars to a recipe but this was simply wonderful and so easy.  My family loved it.  It may not be pretty but it is delish.  We had this with grilled NY Strip steaks.
