Super-Zesty Mashed Potatoes
2 1/2 pounds small red bliss potatoes, quartered
3 cloves garlic, smashed
6 slices Beef Bacon- chopped
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 red onion, diced
3 stalks celery, diced
Put the potatoes and garlic in a large pot. Add enough water to cover the potatoes by 2 inches and season generously with salt. Bring the water to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium and simmer until fork-tender, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook the bacon in the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until browned and crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the onion,and celery .Season with salt and pepper .
Drain the potatoes and transfer them to a large bowl (discard the garlic). Add the bacon-onion mixture to the hot potatoes. Using a potato masher or big spoon, gently mash the potatoes and stir to incorporate. Gently stir in 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise and season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until cold.
Happy weekend ahead :)
