• In a large saucepan cook potatoes and garlic in lightly salted boiling water, covered, for 20 to 25 minutes or until tender; drain. Mash with a potato masher or ricer, or beat with an electric mixer on low speed. Add butter, salt, and pepper. Gradually beat in enough of the half-and-half to make mashed potatoes light and fluffy. Stir in cheese and half of the bacon. Sprinkle remaining bacon on top.
