  • 3 Pounds Alsum red potatoes quartered
  • 6 Garlic cloves peeled
  • 8 Ounces Bacon cooked, chopped
  • 2 Cups Broccoli chopped
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Teaspoon Sea salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Black pepper
  • ½ Cup Sour cream
  • 6 Ounces Cheddar cheese divided
  • ¼ Cup Chives chopped


  • Place the potatoes and garlic in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium. Simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and return to the pan.
  • While the bacon and potatoes are cooking, steam broccoli for 5 minutes.
  • When the potatoes are almost done, bring milk to a simmer. Add butter and stir until melted. Pour the mixture over the warm potatoes and add salt and pepper. Mash with a potato masher.
  • Stir in cooked bacon, broccoli, sour cream, 4 ounces of cheese and chives. Mix until well combined, and top with additional cheese.


Tip: To make ahead, transfer to a 2 quart baking dish. Allow to cool and then press plastic wrap directly into the surface. Refrigerate. To reheat, preheat an oven to 400°F. Allow the potatoes to stand at room temperature for 45 minutes. Remove plastic wrap and top with additional cheese. Bake for 35 minutes, or until warmed through.
