Step 1

Wash and quarter potatoes. Place in large pot; cover with cold water. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer and cook 15 minutes, or until potatoes are fork-tender.

Step 2

Drain, reserving 1 cup of cooking liquid, then return potatoes to pot. Add butter, cream cheese and sour cream. Mash until incorporated but not totally smooth, leaving some lumps.

Step 3

Add 1/2 cup of reserved water, then more as needed. Fold in most of the cheddar cheese, bacon and green onion's. Transfer to serving bowl and garnish with remaining cheese, bacon and onions. Serve immediately, refrigerating any leftovers.

These potatoes were very good with the meatloaf we served them with last night. Who doesn't love bacon, sour cream, green onions, cheese, butter, and cream cheese?
