THE CRAZY COOKING CHALLENGE!
Baked Mashed Potatoes with Parmesan Cheese & Bread Crumbs
Recipe from cookbookshelf.wordpress.com

I love potaters. Yes, that’s right I said potaters. I am so excited, and when I am excited, I start speaking with a drawl! There is something so wonderful about them, you can make a bazillion recipes with a potater or just eating them baked is simply wonderful with all of the fixin’s. But today, I am not baking potaters, I am mashing them, because today is THE CRAZY COOKING CHALLENGE. The challenge for this month is to come up with a mashed potato recipe that has been previously blogged about. So, I looked around and found this delicious recipe from cookbookshelf.wordpress.com. My family loved it! These potaters or potatoes, I am calming down now, are mmm mmm good. My family actually requested them- get this- instead of Thanksgiving mashed potatoes- I know, I couldn’t believe the die hard fans of mashed potatoes have succumbed to these- happy day! Why? You can make this up to 6 hours ahead of time, up to when you would like bake it. Cover and chill.

Here’s what you will need: potatoes, milk, butter, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, salt and pepper.

Peel potatoes.




Cut potatoes into 1 inch pieces.


Butter baking dish.
