Baked Mashed Potatoes with Parmesan Cheese and Bre

Angela (Grammy) Derby


The flavor of this delicious potato casserole is reminiscent of twice-baked potatoes, but a whole lot less work. In fact, this recipe is easy and delicious! I'm thinking that I'll add some goodies next time, bacon, chives, ham...all good! :)
