Ciao Bella Potato "Pizza"

This is something my Mom would make all the time for my sister and I growing up. It really is a family favorite. Every time I have it, it takes me back to being a kid.

It obviously is not a pizza, except for the fact it is flat and is baked in the oven. This is great as an appetizer,side dish or even a main dish with a salad.

Enjoy!

Cook:

Ingredients

4-5 medium
russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
3 large
eggs
1/2 bunch
italian parsley, chopped
1/2-3/4 c
milk
1/2 c
grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp
salt
1/8 tsp
pepper
(sprinkle of garlic powder, optional)
1/4 c
plain bread crumbs
2 Tbsp
butter, melted

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9" X 13" baking pan.
2
In a large pot cover potatoes in cold water (can add an additional teaspoon of salt if desired) and allow to come to a boil. Cook until fork tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and place in a large bowl.
3
Mash potatoes with a fork. Do not use an electric mixer. Mixture should have some texture to it.
4
Add eggs, parsley, 1/2 cup of milk, cheese salt and pepper; mix well. Mixture should be creamy. If it seems dry add additional 1/4 cup milk.
5
Press into pan with fork leaving marks on top for texture. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and drizzle with melted butter.
6
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool slightly and serve warm (or cold).
