This was my winning entry in the Annual Power Facts Recipe Contest sponsored by Alabama Power. I think it was in 2004. Warning: it's loaded with fat, calories and TASTE!!
SERVES 6 -8
7 medium potatoes, peeled and chunked
8 slices bacon
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 Tablespoons butter
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper
Boil potatoes until cooked.
While potatoes are boiling, fry bacon.
Chop fried bacon.
Drain potatoes and place in a large mixing bowl.
Add all other ingredients.
Whip with electric mixer (don't whip until completely smooth - leave some chunks in it; if you whip it too much it will be soupy).
Put whipped potato mixture into a 1 1/2 quart baking dish.
Cover and bake at 350° F.
