What's better than traditional mashed potatoes? The addition of salty bacon and naturally sweet spuds.

How to Make It

Step 1

Pierce each potato with a fork 3 to 4 times on each side. Wrap each potato in a damp paper towel. Microwave at HIGH 8 minutes, turning after 4 minutes. Cool slightly. Cut potatoes in half; scoop pulp into a bowl. Mash pulp.

Step 2

Stir butter, milk, and syrup into potato pulp. Top with bacon.
