1 stick butter or margarine

Directions:
Cut potatoes in quarters (leave skins on) and boil in salted water until tender. Drain. Put stick of butter in bottom of mixing bowl; put cooked, hot potatoes on top. With mixer, mash; then slowly start to mix. Add salt, pepper and garlic powder and mix. Add container of sour cream and mix. Stir in half of shredded cheese. Pour into greased casserole dish. Cover with remaining shredded cheddar cheese, crumbled bacon and chopped green onions. Bake at 300 for approximately 30 mins. (Can be left in oven up to 1-to 1-1/2 hours -- the potatoes only grow in height -- don't know why.)

Milk can be used when cutting in the sour cream in half or doubling the recipe, but sour cream makes it especially good.

Personal Notes:
Great pot luck dish or to serve at a barbeque in place of potato salad for a change of pace. I just made this for the first time and it is quite wonderful. I used the new "real bacon" pieces now available in stores and they worked perfectly.
