  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 2-quart baking dish.
  2. Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Return potatoes to pot and roughly mash them with 1/4 cup butter.
  3. Meanwhile, place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove all but 1 teaspoon of bacon drippings from the skillet. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate, and allow to cool. Crumble the bacon and set aside.
  4. Place chopped onion in the skillet and cook and stir over medium-low heat until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Scrape onion out of the skillet over the potatoes.
  5. Stir reserved bacon, cottage cheese, green onion, 1/2 cup of shredded Cheddar cheese, salt, and pepper into the potato mixture and mix lightly to combine. Spoon into the prepared baking dish, dot with 2 tablespoons of butter, and sprinkle with 1/4 cup of Cheddar cheese. Garnish top with paprika for color, and bake, uncovered, in oven for 30 minutes, until the top begins to brown and the cheese is melted and bubbling.

Good flavor but just mashed potatoes. What doesn't taste great with bacon and cheese. Would be much better in scallop potatoes perhaps. Not for the healthy eater.

my favorite way to prepare potatoes as a side dish!

This was pretty good. I give it 4.5/5 stars, since I really liked it, but it didn't "wow" me. I used left over frozen garlic mashed potatoes, but that didn't seem to make much of a difference ...

MY HUSBAND DEFINITELY GIVES THIS RECIPE A 5-STAR RATING- I PRETTY MUCH FOLLOWED THE RECIPE EXCEPT AN ADDITION OF SOME GARLIC- DEFINITELY A GOOD SIDEDISH FOR A BARBECUE - VERY COMFORTING-

This really is a great recipe and one of the few that I've actually followed. This would be awesome with ham! We all loved it, thanks for submitting it!!

These potatoes are soooo good. I used goat's milk mozzarella because that's all I had. My dinner guests were quite pleased and I had many requests for the recipe.

I made this for christmas dinner and my family loved it. I followed the recipe but forgot to buy cheddar cheese. So I substituted it with milk and a little mayyonaise. I was absolutely delici...
