Connie Susa


5-6 potatoes, washed, peeled and cut into quarters (I prefer Yukon Gold if you can get them)
6-7 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled into pieces
4 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, plus more for garnishing
Salt and pepper
2 Tbsp. sour cream
3 Tbsp. butter
Milk, as needed for mashed potato consistency

* Preheat oven to 350
* Put quartered potatoes into a large pot and cover with cold water. Add about 2 Tbsp. salt.
* Bring the pot to a boil over medium-high heat and cook potatoes until tender.
* Drain the potatoes well and leave them in the pot.
* Add the butter, sour cream and about 1/3 cup of milk.
* Using a potato masher or electric hand mixer, mash the potatoes until smooth and all lumps are gone.
* Add more milk as necessary until you have the consistency you desire for the potatoes.
* Stir in the bacon, green onions and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste.
* Line a baking sheet with foil.
* Using a large spoon, mound the potatoes onto the baking sheet simmer to little hills (about 1/2 cup of potatoes per hill, depending on how big you like them).
* Top each hill with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese.
* Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake until the hills are heated through, about 15-20 minutes.
* Remove baking sheet from the oven and scoop 1-2 hills on each plate.
* Serve with any type of meat or chicken and a salad.
* Head for the Hills and enjoy!
