Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Peel potatoes, and cut into 1 inch chunks. Place in a large saucepan, (remove comma) and add enough cold water to cover by about 2 inches. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce to a simmer. Cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain potatoes, return to pan, cover, and set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. Using a fork, mash the potatoes in pan until light and fluffy. Add the cream cheese, butter, and sour cream, and stir until combined and smooth. Add the chives, 2 cups cheddar cheese, half the bacon, salt, and pepper. Stir until well combined.
  4. Transfer to a buttered 3 quart baking dish. 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. Serve immediately.

The absolute star of the show in terms of tonight's dinner. As this recipe's first reviewer I say wow, these are some great potatoes! (Me thinks it just might have a little something to do with the cheese and especially the bacon) I confess I did not make a point to shop for and find the "Dietz & Watson Roasted Garlic Cheddar Cheese," choosing instead to use an awesome Gruyere. I made a small amount of this recipe, using the buttery tasting Yukon Golds, and baked it in a small, oval ramekin.

CAN'T FIND THE CHEESE? I had this recipe in my shopping list for some time, but could not locate the specialty cheese. This is what I did because I was determined to make this, and try to be fair in my rating. I used golden potatoes because they are my husband's favorite. Skipped bacon because I can't have it, but I am sure it would take it over the top. I did everything else the same except I used a quality plane flavored sharp cheddar cheese and for the salt I used garlic salt. I hate the mess of making mash potatoes, but it is so rewarding in the end. I am freezing half of the uncooked potatoes in small containers for several meals as it is just my husband and I. Enjoy!
