Oven-baked Mashed Potatoes


Mashed potatoes is a must-have for our holiday dinner. It is easy to buy from any store, but given that I have set myself the challenge to prepare a 100% home-cooked holiday dinner, I have to do it myself this time. This is soft, creamy, and smooth when served hot. Make sure to stir in a little more milk, cover, and reheat if you have leftovers.

  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 20 mins


  • 2 lbs russet potatoes
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 4 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup + 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tbsp bread crumbs
  • Salt and Pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Grease the baking dish with 1 Tbsp butter and set aside.
  3. Peel and cut the potatoes into 1 inch pieces. Boil in a large pot of water until very tender, about 15 mins. Drain and mash potatoes in the pot.
  4. Mix in milk and butter. Stir in the 3/4 cup mozzarella and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese.
  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan and breadcrumbs.
  7. Transfer to greased baking dish and bake until top is golden brown, about 20 mins.
  8. Serve hot.
