Mashed Taters with All the Fixin's!!

By now you're probably getting the feeling that I like potatoes. You'd be right in that assumption! Add in some onion, bacon and cheese and I'm in heaven! I get this potato addiction honestly from my mother.

Servings: 4

4 large potatoes - peeled and diced
1 tbsp butter
1/2 cup green pepper, diced
1/3 cup onion, diced
1 cup mushrooms, thinly sliced
2 slices bacon, diced
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, grated (divided)
3 tbsp milk

Preheat oven to 350F. Boil potatoes in salted water until tender. Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add green pepper and onion; saute until tender-crisp. Add mushrooms and bacon; saute until bacon is cooked through. Drain any excess fat. Set aside

Drain potatoes and mash in a large bowl until smooth. Stir in 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese, milk and vegetable/bacon mixture. Pour potato mixture into a greased baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheddar cheese. Bake until heated through (approximately 20 minutes). Serve immediately.
