Ingredients
  • 5   pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1   teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for boiling potatoes
  • 3/4  cup whole milk, heated, plus more as needed
  • 4   tablespoons bacon fat
  • 1   pound carrots
  • 6   slices bacon
Directions
1. 
Peel carrots and cut into 1-inch pieces. Steam until just tender; drain and set aside. Cook bacon until just crisp; drain on paper towels (reserve fat), crumble and set aside.
2. 
Place potatoes in a large pot, cover with cold water by 2 inches and bring to a boil; add salt. Simmer until fork-tender but not falling apart, about 30 minutes; drain.
3. 
Transfer potatoes to a large mixer bowl and, using whisk attachment, beat on medium speed until finely crumbled. Add milk, butter and 2 teaspoons salt; beat until just smooth, adding more milk as needed for a light, creamy texture.
4. 
Add carrots and bacon; beat until carrots are slightly mashed. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
