  3. Remove the bacon from the skillet, keeping the drippings in the skillet.
  4. Remove the skillet from the heat. Chop the bacon and reserve.
  5. Place the potatoes and garlic in a large pot with enough water to cover by 2 inches and bring to a boil.

  8. Mash with the broth, yogurt, salt and pepper until smooth.
