These are amazingly simple to make and taste better than I expected when I made them.
2 1/2-3 lbs. Russet Potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
1 3/4 C Shredded Cheddar Cheese, divided
4 Pieces Bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1/2 C Milk
Salt and Pepper to taste
-Place cut potatoes in medium pot, cover with water and a dash of salt. Bring to boil, lower temperature and allow to boil 20 minutes. Drain, and return to pot. Cook on medium about 2-3 minutes (this will cook off any excess water).
-Mash potatoes, stir in butter until melted and well incorporated. Stir in milk, and 3/4C cheese. Ensure cheese is mostly melted. Stir in 1/2 of crumbled bacon, salt and pepper.
-Grease a 11X7 inch baking pan. Pour potato mixture into pan, even out as much as possible. Sprinkle remaining 1 C Cheese. Bake 400 degrees for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle remaining bacon on top. Allow to cook 10-20 minutes, or until cool enough to cut out slices from pan. Enjoy!
Great topped with sour cream and green onion if you desire.
