Servings: 6 Servings
- 3 strips bacon
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 2 medium yellow onions thinly sliced
- 1 tablespoons minced fresh sage
- 2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
- 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt divided
- 2/3 cup non-fat or low-fat 1% milk
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
The Bacon & Onions:
Place the bacon in a large skillet set over medium heat. Cook the bacon until it is golden brown and crispy. Transfer to a paper towel to drain. Crumble and set aside.
Discard all but 1 teaspoon of the bacon fat. Add the olive to the bacon fat and set the skillet over medium heat.
Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are golden brown. Add the fresh sage and cook for 1 more minute.
Place cubed potatoes in a large saucepan and cover potatoes with cold water. Add 1 teaspoon kosher salt and set saucepan over high heat.
Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork, about 15 minutes.
Drain potatoes, return to saucepan and set over medium heat, stirring the potatoes until dry, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and cover to keep potatoes warm.
In a medium saucepan set over medium heat, combine milk, butter, remaining salt and freshly ground black pepper. Stir occasionally until butter is melted.
Reduce heat to low.
Rest a food mill, fitted with the medium disc, on top of the saucepan with the milk mixture.
Working with about one-third of the potatoes at a time, run the potatoes through the food mill, directly into the saucepan. Alternatively, use a potato ricer.
Using a rubber spatula (a heatproof one, please) stir the potatoes into the milk mixture until completely combined.
Stir the caramelized onions and bacon into the mashed potatoes. Taste and add additional salt and pepper, if necessary. Serve.
