Let me preface this with a quick note. This batch was HUGE. The first time I made them I used locally grown baby reds, I wasn't so lucky this time, and got carried away and cut the whole 5lb bag! On the bright side, Hubby makes a mean potato cake and now we have plenty left over for him to work his magic with ;)
I started with these ingredients:
Red potatoes (baby reds are best!) with skins left on, washed and quartered.
1 pouch of real bacon pieces
splash of milk
salt and pepper
add salt and pepper to taste.
I'm thinking of using greek yogurt in place of the butter next time, baby steps!
