Cheesy Baked Mashed Potatoes

Dana Ramsey


Had leftover mashed potatoes and this is what I came up with.

My husband and son went nuts over this. After dinner my husband sat at the table and ate the rest of the potatoes. He told me they were super good and that he loved them!!!!!!!!!!!! I love when I can please my family with good food! Enjoy!
