  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Place the potatoes into a saucepan, and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes, just until soft. Drain water, and mash potatoes. Beat in the butter, and about half of the milk using an electric mixer. Add more milk if needed to achieve the desired consistency of mashed potato. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Spread potatoes evenly in a 9x13 inch baking dish, or desired casserole dish. Sprinkle the bread crumbs and cheese over the top.
  4. Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until the cheese is melted and the top is browned. Serve immediately.

Made lots of additions - sauteed onions, sauteed bell peppers, mushrooms. Made this for a tailgate party - I would probably make it again for the same type of occasion.

Very good! Big hit! I followed the recipe exactly except I added some bacon bits to it. WOW

Very good. Also tried sour cream in potatoes, cheddar(instead of jack), ranch bread crumbs, and sprinkled with chopped bacon and chives. Big hit.

Excellent recipe. I didn't have garlic seasoned bread crumbs so I just added some garlic powder to some store bought seasoned crumbs and it turned out perfect. Make sure you don't add too much m...

This was pretty good, but I'm thinking perhaps a bit less bread crumbs for me next time and a little more cheese. It was just a bit too funky for me. Thanks though! :)

Good recipe idea with probably hundreds of variations. Omitted bread crumbs, used feta cheese, topped with sauteed mushrooms and green onions.
