“I grew up in a Catholic family, when Catholics could not eat meat on Fridays. Fish and a side dish were Friday meals. One particularly favorite side-dish was this recipe. Hearty, filling and delicious! Cubed ham and finely chopped onions can be added to the potato and cheese mixture if you want more of a one-dish meal. Use American, muenster, havarti, or brie cheese. Happy cooking!” - by Sandra G
Original recipe yields 1 9-inch pie
- Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Mash the potatoes with 1/4 cup butter, 1/4 cup milk, salt, and black pepper to make medium-stiff mashed potatoes; stir in the American cheese.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- Fit a crust into a 9-inch pie dish, and fill with the potato mixture. Place the top crust on the pie, roll the edges together and crimp with a fork to seal. Stir the melted butter and 2 teaspoons of milk together in a small bowl, and brush the mixture all over the pie crust. Cut several vent holes in the top of the crust.
- Bake the pie in the preheated oven until the crust is golden brown, about 45 minutes; if the edges are getting too brown, wrap them in aluminum foil.
