Hello??! How good do these sound!!! While doing things around the house Saturday, we had the Food Network Channel on in the background. All day it was noting but Thanksgiving this, Thanksgiving that…..it was GREAT! Plus it was with all of my favorite people like Paula Deen, Guy Fieri, Giada De Laurentiis, The Neely’s, just to name a few. I had to stop and watch as Giada was making these baked mashed potatoes. They looked unbelievably good…and I easily believe that they are fabulous because this recipe is 5 star rated with almost 300 reviews!
I cannot wait to make these!

Printable Version: Baked Mashed Potatoes w/Parmesan Cheese & Bread Crumbs
- 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
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 13 X 9 X 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.
