Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. In a covered large saucepan cook potatoes in enough boiling water to cover for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender; drain. Mash with a potato masher or ricer, or beat with an electric mixer on low speed. Season with salt and pepper. If necessary, gradually beat in a small amount of milk to make mashed potatoes light and fluffy.*

Instructions Checklist
  • Grease four to six 10-ounce individual casseroles or custard cups or a 1 1/2-quart casserole. Place on a baking sheet. Spoon mashed potatoes into the prepared casseroles. In a medium bowl beat cream with an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form (tips curl); fold in cheese. Spoon cheese mixture over potatoes. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until light brown. If desired, garnish with chopped green onion.

*Test Kitchen Tip:

If desired, stir your favorite add-ins into the mashed potatoes, such as roasted or sauteed garlic or shallots, fresh snipped herbs, prepared horseradish, Dijon-style mustard, crumbled blue cheese, or crumbled, crisp-cooked bacon.
