My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Rosemary Bacon Mashed Potatoes

How could anything this simple be sooo good! I have a nephew that thinks mashed potatoes should be on the table 7 nights a week. Do you know how boring it is to make plain old mashed potatoes everyday! These are a wonderful change of pace.

Rosemary Bacon Mashed Potatoes
4 servings
print recipe

1 1/2 pounds Idaho potatoes
1/4 cup whipping cream
4 tablespoons butter, softened
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon white pepper
2 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled

Peel and cube potatoes. Cook in boiling water until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain well and return to burner to remove any excess water.

Mash potatoes with a potato masher. Add cream, butter, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Whip by hand until light and fluffy. Add bacon. Serve hot.
