1kg red new potatoes, quartered
2 cloves garlic, smashed
5 to 6 strips bacon
110g Gorgonzola cheese, room temperature
60ml double cream, room temperature
15g butter, room temperature
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1) Add the potatoes and garlic to a medium saucepan and fill with enough cold water to cover the potatoes by about 2cm. Season with salt and bring the water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are soft, about 15 minutes.

2) Meanwhile, fry the bacon in a frying pan until crisp. Set aside on a paper towel to drain. Roughly chop and reserve.

3) Drain the potatoes and garlic and place them back in the pan with the cheese, double cream, butter and chopped bacon. Roughly mash, adding more cream if needed.

4) Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve immediately.
