Directions

  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.

the only thing imho is if you beat the potatoes with a mixer you have whipped potatoes (aka mud) and with that texture the flavor goes bye bye too. mashed s/b as it says and it should have some lumps and texture and with the lumpier texture there is more flavor

I used instant mashed potatoes to save time, and subbed cheddar cheese for Jack. Also added 4 tbsp of sour cream to the mashed potatoes so they wouldn't dry out. Pretty good twist on instant potatoes.
