  • large pot
  • colander
  • Large Skillet
  • potato masher
  • 9x13-inch Baking Pan


  • 5 pounds russet potatoes
  • 10 strips bacon
  • 1 8 ounce package cream cheese
  • ½ cup butter (melted)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 6 green onions (diced)
  • 2 ½ cups cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Wash and peel potatoes, and cut into 1-inch pieces.
  • Place in a large pot, and add enough cold water to cover by about 2 inches. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and reduce to a simmer.
  • Cook until tender and easily pierced with a paring knife, about 20 minutes.
  • Transfer to a colander to drain; return to pan, cover, and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add bacon, and cook until crisp and browned, turning once. Transfer to paper towels to drain; let cool, and crumble into pieces.
  • Using a hand mixer, mash the potatoes in pan until light and fluffy.
  • Add the cream cheese, butter, and sour cream, and beat until combined and smooth. Add the green onions, 2 cups cheddar cheese, half the bacon, salt, and pepper. Stir until well combined.
  • Transfer to a 9 x 13 inch baking pan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Top with remaining 1/2 cup cheddar cheese.
  • Bake until top is slightly golden and potatoes are heated through, about 30 minutes.
  • Remove from oven; garnish with remaining bacon.


  • If you make this ahead of time be sure to refrigerate until baking.
