Loaded Mashed Potatoes

Does this ever happen to you?  You're in the kitchen getting ready for dinner.  You prepare some mashed potatoes.  You look in the cupboard for a gravy mix, and there isn't one there.  Darnit.  Shucks.  Well, this is a good go-to recipe when that happens to you.  You can still use the mashed potatoes but make them into a giant, fluffy baked potato.  Super easy.  Delicious.
Loaded Mashed Potatoes:
4 c prepared mashed potatoes
1 c cheddar cheese
3 green onions, chopped
1/4 c sour cream
salt pepper
2 T bacon bits
1/4 c French Fried Onions

Prepare the mashed potatoes.  Stir in 3/4 c cheddar cheese and two of the chopped green onions.  Add the sour cream and a little salt and pepper.
 Top with the remaining cheddar cheese.
 Sprinkle on the French Fried Onions, the remaining green onion, and the bacon bits.
 Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
