Baked Mashed Potatoes with Parmesan Cheese and Bre
russet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1"cubes
(1 stick) butter, melted
mozzarella cheese, shredded
freshly grated parmesan, divided
plain dry bread crumbs
Preheat the oven to 400'F. Coat a 13x9" baking dish with 1 Tbsp. butter, 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; add 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. Serves 6-8
