Loaded Mashed Potato Casserole

I got some more cheese *wink* and made a recipe from my cookbook. But of course, I added my Queeny tweaks to make it healthier. So here is what I did:
9 large baking potatoes
1 cup skim milk
8 oz of low fat cream cheese
8 oz of reduced fat sour cream
1 tsp of kosher salt
1 tsp of pepper
2 slices of turkey bacon
1/2 cup of shredded reduced fat cheddar cheese
2 tsp of dried parsley

Preheat oven to 350. Scrub potatoes, rinse, dry and pierce skin several times with a fork. Cool bacon and chopped into pieces and set aside. Place no more than five 1 inch apart in the microwave on a paper towel. Microwave on high for 10 minutes, turn over and microwave for another 10 minutes. Allow to cool then peel and mash with a masher. Add potatoes, cream cheese, milk, and sour cream to bowl and blend with a mixer. Add salt, pepper and parsley. Pour mix into a baking dish that has been lightly coated with cooking spray. Top with cheddar cheese and chopped bacon. Cover and bake for 30 minutes and then uncover and bake for 10 more minutes. Q
