1. Heat oven to 350.
2. Lightly coat a 3 qt. shallow baking dish with non-stick spray.
3. Cook potatoes in just enough water to cover for 20 - 25 minutes, until tender when pierced.
4. Drain in a colander and return to pot.
5. Add butter to potatoes, mash with a potato masher until smooth.
6. Stir in 2 c. cheese, milk, sour cream and eggs until blended.
7. Then add onions and bacon bits, reserving a few tablespoons of each for garnish.
8. Stir in salt and pepper.
9. Spoon into prepared baking dish.
10. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 c. cheese and bacon.
11. Bake, uncovered, 40 minutes or until top is lightly golden.
12. Sprinkle with remaining onions.
Mash potatoes while still hot, to prevent them from becoming gummy.
I use a food mill or ricer to mash potatoes.
I edited the recipe and reduced the salt from 2.5 to 1 teaspoon. Please adjust the salt to your own taste.
