Gas Up the Stove

Allan's Loaded Potato Casserole
6 cups mashed potatoes (fresh or good quality instant)
1 1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
6 strips bacon, very crisp or 1/2 cup good quality "real" bacon bits
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions (scallions)

Prepare mashed potatoes based on your own favorite recipe or according to package directions for instant mashed potatoes.

Note from the cook: "I used Idahoan brand instant mashed potatoes and substituted half-and-half (cream) for 1/2 of the required milk to result in a creamier product."

Add 1/2 cup of the sour cream to the mashed potatoes and mix well.

Spread the mashed potatoes in a 3-quart or larger oven-proof casserole dish. Top (in order) with 1 cup sour cream, 1 cup grated cheddar cheese (cook suggests mild cheddar or Colby), crumbled bacon and green onions.

Bake in 350-degree oven for 30 minutes.
