Mashed potatoes and carmelized goodness

Bulk potatoes to dish out as a side to your meal prep goals because I know y'all have been trying it out. ;)  This recipe is so easy, once you do it 2-3 times you can memorize this one.

 Have a great Tuesday y'all!

Cooked red onions // add balsamic vinegar

Add chopped bacon & pine nuts

quarter sized potatoes // cover // cook for 15 mins.

Mashed potatoes with caramelized goodness


12 (3 lb bag) yukon potatoes
5-10 slices of cooked and chopped bacon
1/2 red onion
1/2 cup pine nuts
2 tbsp of balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup coconut milk (light if you're more calorie conscious)


Cook your bacon to your liking. Once done, chop into small bits and throw out most of the bacon grease. You will use the left over to cook with. Add your chopped red onions. Try not to overcook the onions. Cook 2-3 mins. Turn up the heat. Add balsamic vinegar. Scrape the bottom of the pan while this is cooking, 2-3 mins. Turn off and add pine nuts and chopped bacon. Mix well. This is your "caramelized goodness" topping.

Cut your entire bag of yukon potatoes into quarter size slices. Fill pot with 1/2 inch water, cover and cook for 15 mins or until soft. Drain any water left over. Add 3/4 cup of coconut milk. Mash well. Add your topping.

 Give this healthy dish a try. I like to add it as a side to my meal prep Sunday. Great with chicken, fish or steaks!

So good , y'all.
