Ultimate Mashed Potatoes

Everyone should know how to make a classic mashed potato recipe but we think going the extra mile is more than worth it!


  • Preheat the oven to 200C or 180C for fan assisted ovens and grease a baking dish.

  • In a large saucepan, cover the chopped potatoes and peeled garlic in water, bring to the boil, reduce and simmer for 15 minutes or until tender. Drain, return the potatoes and garlic to the pan, toss over a low heat for a minute or two until completely dry.

  • Melt 20g of butter in a frying pan, over a medium heat, add the bacon, cook while stirring until golden brown. Drain using a paper towel.

  • Mash the potatoes until smooth, stir in the cream cheese and remaining butter and beat. Gradually stir in the milk and onions and half of the bacon and season with salt and pepper.

  • Spoon the mash into the prepared dish, sprinkle with cheese and some of the leftover bacon, bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown and serve with the remaining bacon on top.
