|The cure for hunger|
2lb red potatoes, scrubbed clean
5-6 slices uncured bacon (nitrate free)
4tbs organic butter
splash coconut milk (I used "light" coconut milk for its mild flavor)
salt and pepper to taste
1. In a large stock pot, place enough water to cover your potatoes. Bring to a boil and then boil them until fork tender (about 25-30 minutes). Drain.
2. Meanwhile, fry yourself a pan of bacon. Then crumble the bacon and reserve 1-2tbs bacon grease.
3. Place drained potatoes back in the pot. Add butter, a splash of coconut milk and a splash of bacon grease and cover with a lid. Let set a couple minutes or until butter is melted.
4. Using a hand masher, mash your potatoes. If you want them a bit thinner, add more liquid. At the end, mash in your bacon crumbles. Season with salt and pepper. Serve hot.
