Dutch Oven Skin-On Mashed Potatoes with Bacon

I have been wanting a Dutch oven for ages. I usually acquire my fun kitchen gadgets during the holiday season so that I can capitalize on the great sales. I purchased my Dutch oven during one of the After-Thanksgiving sales. Perfect timing! My Dutch oven arrived right in time to create a dish for Christmas dinner. Mashed potatoes are typically one of my contributions to holiday dinner.

Here’s a link to the oven I purchased.

For Thanksgiving, I made Holiday Crack Mashed Potatoes. I decided to switch it up a bit with different ingredients. I was also hoping I could save some time using the Dutch oven instead of a conventional since I had a few other holiday dishes to prepare.

Dutch Oven Mashed Potatoes with Bacon

I typically use red potatoes, but I used Russet for this recipe. Yukon gold is another great option. I usually spend a lot of time peeling the potatoes, and then more time waiting for them to boil in water on the stove on high heat. Here, I washed the potatoes thoroughly with Trader Joe’s Veggie Wash.

I filled the Dutch oven with salted water and added the unpeeled potatoes. After allowing the potatoes a few minutes to boil, I placed the lid on the oven and adjusted the temperature to low. The potatoes were soft in 15 minutes! I started to mash them immediately since I planned to keep the skin within the mixture. The mashed potatoes were fabulous! I will definitely use this method again.
