Buttermilk and Bacon Mashed Potatoes

3 pounds potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 large onion, chopped
3 slices bacon
1 quart buttermilk

Cut and peel potatoes and boil in large saucepan until tender.
In another pan, cook slices of bacon (I used turkey bacon to make this a taaad bit more healthy). Once the bacon is cooked, place bacon on a paperplate. Cook the onions in the bacon grease until translucent.

Mash the potatoes in a bowl and add 2 of the slices of bacon (crumbled) and the onion. Add the buttermilk (you can add sour cream too if you like). Whip with a fork and then crumble the other slice of bacon on top.

I didn't have any green onions but I thought chopped green onions would look and taste great as a garnish on top.
