Baked Mashed Potatoes with Parmesan
  • Meal

    Side Dish

  • Cusine



4 lbs yellow potatoes or russet potatoes

1/2 cup unsalted butter

2 garlic cloves

1 cup whole milk

1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

1 1/2 cups freshly grated mozzarella cheese


2 1/2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 13 by 9-inch baking dish. Place potatoes in a pot and cover with water until potatoes are covered by an inch or two. Bring potatoes to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until very tender when pierced with a fork, about 15 - 25 minutes. Meanwhile melt butter over medium heat. Add garlic and saute 30 - 60 seconds to remove harsh bite, set aside. Drain potatoes, return to pot and mash well or pass through a potato ricer or food mill. Add butter mixture to potatoes along with, milk, mozzarella, 3/4 cup parmesan, and 2 Tbsp parsley. Stir and thin with a little more milk if desired and season with salt to taste. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish, spread into an even layer. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup parmesan over the top. Bake in preheated oven 20 minutes, for better browning on top move closer to broiler and broil briefly (about 2 - 3 minutes.) during last few minutes of cooking. Garnish with 1/2 Tbsp parsley and serve warm.
