How to Make Baked Mashed Potatoes
- Peel the potatoes and cut into 1" chunks. Boil until tender and drain. Mash potatoes and add 6 TBS of the butter and then the milk. Stir and whip until potatoes are smooth.
- Add mozzarella, Romano cheese and salami. Stir to blend. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Use 1 TB of the remaining butter to grease the bottom and sides of a high-sided casserole dish. Coat the bottom and sides with breadcrumbs
- Spoon potato mixture into the dish and dot the top with the butter.
Bake at 350° until the top is golden brown.
