Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 pounds russet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons plain dry bread crumbs
Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 13 by 9 by 2-inch baking dish with 1 tablespoon of butter and set aside.

Cook the potatoes in a large pot of boiling salted water until they are very tender, about 15 minutes. Drain; return the potatoes to the same pot and mash well. Mix in the milk and melted butter. Mix in the mozzarella and 3/4 cup of the Parmesan. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Transfer the potatoes to the prepared baking dish. Stir the bread crumbs and remaining 1/4 cup of Parmesan in a small bowl to blend. Sprinkle the bread crumb mixture over the mashed potatoes. Recipe can be prepared up to this point 6 hours ahead of time; cover and chill.

Bake, uncovered, until the topping is golden brown, about 20 minutes.

They were the WORST tasting Potatoes I have ever had item not reviewed by moderator and published
can I make these the night before? item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is best served immediately. It doesn't refrigerate & reheat well. I think because of the high cheese content, it becomes totally solid when refrigerated. Which is ok, but then when you microwave it, it never gets back to the original texture. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I loved this and how simple it is to make. For my preference I added some diced caramelized onions, garlic powder, sour cream and chives. It came out tasty and everyone loved it. Served it with a glazed sesame covered salmon. This was a perfect comfort food for the horrible snow storm outside. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This was the best side dish at our family dinner. Our family always does mashed potatoes for thanksgiving and I was afraid to try this recipe because everyone always looks forward to the turkey and potatoes....it was a hit!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I Agree potatoes are usually not good about using later, lol, but i have put them in the fridge to use later and just add some sour cream, cream cheese, and/or milk, & cream and then heat them up and its like they were just made, and it's actually really good flavoring from the sour cream and cream cheese combined in the potatoes... Just thought I'd share that with ya, lol. :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
