We made this for st. Paddys day one year and after tweaking it slightly it has become a family favorite. If you love loaded mashed potatoes you should try this recipe! My kids actually request it. I hope that you enjoy it!
Peel and cube potatoes. Cover with cold water and 1tsp salt. Bring to boil for 20-25 minutes till just fork tender. Drain immediately.
While potatoes are cooking, cut off half head of cabbage. Remove yellow inner leaves. They will be bitter. Chop into bite size pieces. Set aside. Chop bacon into small pieces.
In a skillet fry up bacon adding a Tbsp or 2 of water to keep it from getting too crispy. Remove cooked bacon and add cabbage. Stir fry until wilted and tender. Add 1/2 c or 1 stick butter. Season with S&P.
By now your potatoes should be tender. Drain. Add 1/2 c or 1 stick butter to potatoes and mash. Season with S&P. Add milk and beat in until creamy and smooth. Then fold in cabbage and then bacon bits. . Serve warm.. Enjoy
