Mashed Potato Skins

This recipe came from the same episode of Rachael Ray as the Buffalo Chicken Sloppy Joes. My husband LOVES these. They feel like you're being bad, but it's far healthier than eating potato skins in a bar.

I made about half the original recipe, and there was plenty for dinner and lots of leftovers!

1 pound yellow potatoes
1/4 to 1/2 cup buttermilk (to your desired creaminess)
2 to 3 Tbsp. bacon bits
2 to 3 Tbsp. chives
1/3 cup sharp cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

Put potatoes in a medium sauce pot and cover with cold water. Bring the water to a boil and season with salt. Cookpotatoes until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and mash potatoes with buttermilk and season with salt and pepper. Stir in the chives, cheese, and bacon bits.
