A good buffet dish because you can get it ready in advance and bake it whenever is most convenient.

Ingredients
6 potatoes
4 strips bacon
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons butter
1/8 cup hot milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Instructions

In a pot of salted water, boil potatoes until tender.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a large casserole.

While potatoes are cooking, fry bacon until crisp and break into small pieces. In 2 tablespoons of bacon drippings, cook onions and bell peppers until tender.

Using an electric mixer, beat together potatoes, salt, pepper, butter and milk. Begin beating at low speed and move up gradually to high speed, beating until potatoes are fluffy. Add eggs, cheese, onions, bell peppers, and bacon. Beat until well mixed. Scrape into prepared casserole and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden.
