How to Make Creamy Riced Potatoes


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 ounces sliced bacon
  • 12 ounces white or cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 pounds kale—stems and inner ribs removed, leaves coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

How to make this recipe

  1. In a large, deep skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the bacon and cook over moderately high heat until crisp, turning once, about 6 minutes. Drain the bacon on paper towels, leaving the fat in the skillet. Coarsely chop the bacon.

  2. Add the mushrooms to the skillet, season with salt and pepper and cook over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Stir in the onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are softened and lightly browned, about 6 minutes. Add the kale, season with salt and pepper and toss to wilt slightly. Stir in the vinegar, cover and cook over high heat until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the bacon and serve right away.
