While cruising various foodie sites on social media, I saw a reference to a recipe for Vodka Mashed Potatoes. My first reaction was that I thought it was an odd combination of ingredients but hey, I like eclectic food so I just had to give it a try.

Now making mashed potatoes is not that difficult. And this recipe is really no different than every other mashed potato recipe out there, except the Vodka. But don’t worry, you can’t taste the vodka! But it sure does help with the consistency of the mashed potatoes.

Everyone knows I love to add bacon to everything so if you are a bacon fan, fold in a cup of cooked & crumbled bacon. For a little more flair, you can add some roasted garlic to taste.


How to Make this Recipe


Peel and cook potatoes in boiling water until potatoes are soft. Drain well and dry over low heat.


Using an electric beater, add half & half and butter.


Add salt & pepper to taste.


Mix in vodka.


Fold in cooked bacon (optional).


Add roasted garlic to taste (optional).

Chef's Notes

-Bacon lovers can fold in a cup of cooked & crumbled bacon.- For a little more flair, you can add some roasted garlic to taste.
