5 whole large red potatoes
1 stick butter, softened and cut into pieces
1 cup pepper jack cheese, grated
3/4 cup sour cream
5 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 whole spring onions, sliced, plus more for topping
Salt (add plenty)
Freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup French fried onions

Poke a few holes in the potatoes and nuke (or bake in a 205°C oven) until fork-tender. Add to a large bowl and smash with a potato smasher.

Immediately add the softened butter, cheese, sour cream, bacon and spring onions, and stir with a rubber spatula. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add the French fried onions and fold in. Serve hot, sprinkling on extra green onions.

Yummy with grilled steak or chicken.
