Recipe Ingredients for Lighter Loaded Mashed Taters

4 medium Potatoes, peeled and cubed
4 tablespoons Margarine
1/2 cup Non Fat Sour Cream
1/8 cup Milk (I used 1% but you can use Skim or whatever you have on hand)
3/4 cup Shredded Cheddar
4 slices Turkey Bacon, cooked and diced
2 Green Onions, diced
1 Salt and Pepper to taste
1 dash Garlic Powder

Recipe Directions for Lighter Loaded Mashed Taters

Peel and cube the potatoes and place in a stock pot and cover with water. Cook on medium-high heat, bring to a boil and let cook about 20-30 minutes or until fork tender. Once cooked, drain and place back into pot, then add in milk and butter. Using a potato masher, mash the potatoes until creamy and mostly if not fully lump free *You can use a hand or stand mixer to mash the potatoes I just prefer the old fashioned way.* Add the sour cream and spices and mix well. Then add your cheese, cooked diced bacon and green onions and stir. Serve warm.
