Crazy Cooking Challenge~Mashed Potatoes

This month at Crazy Cooking Challenge the recipe search was on for a mashed potato dish. I never realized how many different ways there are to make mashed potatoes!! I searched quite a few sites and looked at a lot of recipes, but the one that intrigued me the most was the Mashed Potato Casserole at Lynn's Kitchen Adventures. This is a wonderful site that is is written by Lynn, a busy wife and mother. Her site is full of creative recipes, kitchen tips, and some knock off recipes (Yum~I love those!) She also writes a blog called Lynn's Recipe Adventures,  her journey of  learning to cook gluten free and allergy  free. I chose Lynn's Mashed Potato Casserole for a couple of reasons. First of all, I have never had mashed potato casserole, and second, it seemed different, but true to the mashed potato! And it was. It was delicious! It had lots of flavor, it was easy to prepare, and I think you could serve this dish at Thanksgiving for a welcome change of pace. Thanks Lynn for a great recipe!

Mashed Potato Casserole
3 tablespoon Butter
3 pounds Potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 Eggs 
1 1/4 cup Milk
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar Jack Cheese
Wash the potatoes, then peel.
Cube potatoes, by cutting them in half. Cut each half in fourths,
then turn them around, and slice each one resulting in cubes!
Place the potatoes in a pot, and cover the potatoes with water.
Add the butter.
Bring the potatoes to a boil, and then lower the temperature,
and cook until they are done.
Drain the potatoes.
Place the potatoes in a mixing bowl.
Add the eggs....
and the milk.
Mash the potatoes. Add 1cup of the shredded cheese
and mix well.
Place the potatoes in a baking dish.
Spray the dish first with pan spray.
Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on the top of the potatoes.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
Cut and serve!

  7. CCC#63 - Your recipe sounds really good...yum-o for the cheese. I, also, chose my recipe because I'd never baked my mashed potatoes before either. I like the light crust is makes.
