1Place potatoes in a large saucepan. Cover with water, bring to a boil. Cook for 15-20 minutes until tender; drain. Heat oven to 350^. Grease a 2 1/2 to 3 quart casserole dish. To the drained potatoes in pan, add the next 4 ingredients. Beat or mash with hand held mixer until smooth. Stir in 1 1/2 cups cheese and half of the bacon. Spoon mixture into prepared dish. Bake 20-25 minutes. Top with remaining bacon, green onion and 1/2 cup cheese.
Make ahead- you can place this in refrigerator after spooning mixture into casserole. Cover with foil and bake 40-45 minutes. Uncover, top with cheese, bacon and onion. Bake 3 minutes more to melt cheese.
This tip from Rebecca Layman. Mix up all the ingredients, do not cook-place in Crockpot and set on low for several hours..until ready to eat..she said it turned out very delicious like this -when she did it at work..raves from co-workers...

Hi Patricia...I posted this exact recipe back in December of 2010..and won a blue ribbon for it and it was on the featured page twice... the second time was just a few weeks ago (aug. 2011). It is yummy no doubt about it...one of my favorite potato dishes. Great minds think alike.. :) My recipe is called: Creamy Mashed Potatoes...the Loaded way! (yours did call for a couple more pieces of bacon then mine...I usually add more..PLUS butter.., always better with butter..lol)
