I didn't have bacon, but I used bacon fat, and the flavor came through just fine. To cut down on the number of pans (!) I sauted the onions in one Tablespoon of bacon fat in my dutch oven. (yay! another chance to use it!) I boiled the potatoes in another pan, drained, mashed mixed right in it. Then put it all into the dutch oven (already greased!) I only had one small bunch of green onions (about 3/4 cup chopped) but it was still very good. I cut out the extra 2 T butter and didn't add salt, thinking it would be salty enough with the bacon fat and cheese. It did need just a little, though. I think that the cottage cheese may be the important ingredient here -- the flavor was really special. Thanks for the great recipe!
