directions

Microwave potatoes according to package instructions.

Meanwhile, in a medium skillet over medium high heat, cook bacon 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Stir in onions and brown sugar, and cook for another minute, or until golden brown.

Remove from heat.

In a large bowl, mix together hot potatoes, milk, butter and barbecue sauce, and mash with a potato masher until smooth.

For a smoother consistency, mix with an electric mixer.

Add bacon mixture, Monterey Jack cheese and green onions, and mix well.

Garnish with additional sliced green onions if desired.

Tip: If desired, substitute shredded Monterey Jack cheese with shredded hot pepper cheese.
