Ingredients

  • 8 slices bacon
  • 2 lbs medium russet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tsp salt + 1/2 tsp
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 3 cups cooked chicken , shredded
  • 4 green onions , sliced thin
  • 8 oz sharp cheddar , grated

Instructions

  • Cook the bacon as desired. (I like to bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 425 degrees while cooking the potatoes. Place the bacon on a rimmed baking sheet covered in foil for easy clean up. Transfer to a paper towel when finished baking; break into pieces when cool.)
  • Peel and cut the potatoes into large chunks. Place potatoes in a medium pot, cover with cold water, and bring to a boil. Add 2 tsp salt, reduce heat and simmer until just tender, but not falling apart. (About 15 minutes.) Drain and transfer to a large bowl.
  • Add the cream and butter to the potatoes, roughly mash with a fork (leaving some chunks).
  • Add the chicken, scallions, bacon, 6oz cheese, salt and pepper to the potatoes. Mix well to combine.
  • Transfer to a shallow baking dish or 6-8 large ramekins.
  • Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake until melted at 350 degrees. (About 15 minutes for ramekins or 20-25 for casserole.)
