Garlic Mozzarella Mashed Potatoes
These deliciously different mashed potatoes are a companion post to my Blackened Pork Chops and the perfect accompaniment.
medium to large russet potatoes
fresh shredded mozzarella*
I use a full teaspoon
strips crumbled crispy cooked bacon
Peel and slice potatoes. Place in large stock pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over medium high heat and then reduce temperature to medium and cook until tender, about thirty minutes.
Drain water and place potatoes in mixing bowl (or you can do this in the pot if you want).
Roughly mash potatoes with potato masher. Add milk, butter, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Mash again until butter is melted.
Stir in cheese and crumbled bacon.
*Can use pre shredded but it won't melt into the potatoes as well.
