Potato, Kale & Pancetta Mash

Total Time 28 minutes
Servings 6


  • 3-5 small/medium red potatoes
  • 3 small/medium yukon gold potatoes
  • water
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 1/2 T green onions (chopped)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 4 oz pancetta (chopped)
  • 1 bunch kale (or less, finely chopped)
  • 1 t salt
  • 1/2 t black pepper
  • 3 T butter
  • 1/4 cup milk or cream


  1. Cut potatoes into small wedges (the smaller, the faster they'll cook), place into a bowl, and fill bowl halfway with water. Microwave for 6 mins. Mix the potatoes. Then microwave another 6 mins. A fork should slide easily into a potato wedge when done. Add microwave time if needed. Then strain.

  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a pan on low/medium heat. Once heated, add green onions, garlic, and pancetta to the pan. Cook for 5 mins.

  3. Then add kale & salt/pepper to pan. Cook for 3-5 mins, until kale cooks down.

  4. Place potatoes in a large bowl, add butter and milk, and mash. Add the contents of the pan and mix everything together.


Serve mash in a bowl or plated, alongside a main dish of your choice.


We recommend that all meals for children be served with milk.
