Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes

I saw this recipe on a popular food network program last week. Last night my parents and my brother came over and allowed me to use them as taste testers! This was a huge hit! NO BUTTER!

6 slices bacon
2 pounds small Yukon Gold potatoes, halved
1 cup buttermilk
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup fresh chives, chopped
1/2 cup extra-sharp cheddar cheese, yellow or white

Pre-heat the oven to 350°F.
Arrange the bacon on a sheet pan and bake for 12-15 minutes until crisp. Cool and chop.
Put the potatoes in a medium size saucepot and cover with cold water. Bring the water to a boil and season with salt. Cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and mash the potatoes with buttermilk and season with salt and pepper. Stir in the chives and cheddar, then fold in the bacon.
