Ingredients
  • 5 whole large red potatoes
  • 1 stick butter, softened and cut into pieces
  • 1 cup pepper jack cheese, grated
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 5 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 whole green onions, sliced, plus more for topping
  • Salt (add plenty!)
  • Freshly ground black pepper (ditto!)
  • 3/4 cup French fried onions
Directions

Poke a few holes in the potatoes and nuke (or bake in a 400 degree F oven) until fork-tender. Add to a large bowl and smash with a potato smasher.

Immediately add the softened butter, cheese, sour cream, bacon and green onions, and stir with a rubber spatula. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add the French fried onions and fold in. Serve hot, sprinkling on extra green onions.

Yummy with grilled steak or chicken.
