Recipe Ingredients for Bacon Smashed Potatoes

3 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
1/2 pound bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons chopped dill

Recipe Directions for Bacon Smashed Potatoes

  1. Steam potatoes in a large steamer rack set over boiling water, covered, until very tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, cook bacon in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium heat until crisp. Transfer bacon with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain, reserving fat in skillet. Add 2 tablespoons vinegar, sugar, and 3/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper to hot bacon fat, scraping up brown bits.

  3. Transfer potatoes to a large bowl, reserving 1/2 cup steaming water. Add vinegar mixture to potatoes and smash with a potato masher to desired texture, adding reserved water if desired. Stir in dill, bacon, and vinegar, salt, and pepper to taste.
