“I actually came up with this by trying to mimic a restaurant recipe. After I was done with it, I was more pleased with my version then I was with the restaurants!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut and skin all but one potato into cubes or chunks and boil.
  2. Prepare lone potato the same way but leaving skin on, cubing and boiling separately, alternatively, this could also be a baked potato.
  3. Drain potatoes and mash either by hand or by mixer.
  4. Add butter and milk until smooth and creamy. I do not add exact measures, as this tends to be a personal decision, but about a tablespoon of each is a good start.
  5. Cook onion separately if you are using, I would personally sauté it.
  6. Mix in bacon bits, garlic powder, onions and salt if you are using them.
  7. Add the lone potato to the mix last. If it was a baked potato, cut it into cubes. If you chose to boil it separately, just drain it, it should already be in cubes.
  8. I would suggest a gentle mix for this lone potato in with the rest, either a really short and low mixer setting, or even just using a fork.
  9. If all goes well you should have a smooth mashed potato with small skinned potato chunks. Yummy!
