Restaraunt Style Smashed Potatoes

These taters are super yummy!  They remind me of the filling in twice-baked potatoes, only better!  The recipe came from Tasty Kitchen.  They are really easy to prepare, which I love.  They may not be the most healthy side dish,  but I will definitely make them every now and again!

•5 whole Large Red Potatoes
•1 stick Butter, Softened And Cut Into Pieces
•5 slices Bacon, cooked and crumbled (I used the Hormel bacon crumbles, and they were yummy!)
•2 whole Green Onions, Sliced
•¾ cups Sour Cream
•Salt To Taste (add Plenty!)
•Freshly Ground Black Pepper To Taste (ditto!)
•¾ cups French Fried Onions, More For Topping

Nuke potatoes or bake in the oven until fork-tender (I baked mine for 1 hour). Add to a large bowl and smash with a potato masher. Immediately add softened butter, green onions, bacon, and sour cream and stir with a rubber spatula. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add french fried onions and fold in.

Serve hot, sprinkling on extra french fried onions and green onions. Yummy with grilled steak or chicken!
