It starts out like an ordinary mashed potato. The addition of cheese, breadcrumbs and 30 minutes in the oven will elevate these spuds to a fine side dish. You can even forgo the meat; with a nice salad these mashed potatoes will make a fine meal.

4 cups chopped potatoes
2 + 1 Tbsp butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup white bread crumbs
2 cups grated old white cheddar

• Peel and chop the potatoes.
• Cook the potatoes until soft.
• Preheat the oven at 375F and generously butter a 9X5 inch oven proof baking dish.
• In a non stick fry pan slowly melt 2 Tbsp butter.
• Add the minced garlic and cook slowly for 1 minute.
• Remove from heat and stir in the chopped parsley and set aside.
• In a bowl combine the breadcrumbs and the grated cheese and set aside.
• Drain the potatoes and mash with a potato masher.
• Season with salt and pepper.
• Add the garlic and parsley mix and the whipping cream and stir to combine.
• Spoon the mashed potatoes into the prepared baking dish.
• Sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture over the top.
• Place in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the cheese melts.
• Serve immediately.


  1. I bet some bacon sprinkled over it would be amazing too!

  2. It looks like a great dish for cold days. We still have at least one month of warm summer days here, so I must remember your recipe for later.

  3. for sure Eva, bacon would go well this thing. True Hungarian thinking.

    Sissi, you are correct, this is a wintery dish. But it was fun eating it in the garden. :-)

  4. For mashed potatoes, especially this delicious baked one, its always correct and proper in my kitchen... spring, summer, winter, or fall. As a matter of fact, my daughter made some a few days ago, cause the little grandson loves it so much!
    I'll be making it your way next time...yumm!
