Recipe Time

Cook Time:


  • 1 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter plus 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter melted
  • 4 pound(s) russet potatoes peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup(s) whole milk at room temperature
  • 1-1/2 cup(s) mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1 cup(s) parmesan cheese freshly grated
  • pinch(s) black pepper freshly ground
  • 2 tablespoon(s) plain dried bread crumbs


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 13 by 9 by 2-inch baking dish with 1 tablespoon of butter and set aside.

  2. Cook the potatoes in a large pot of boiling salted water until they are very tender, about 15 minutes. Drain; return the potatoes to the same pot and mash well. Mix in the milk and melted butter. Mix in the mozzarella and 3/4 cup of the Parmesan. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Transfer the potatoes to the prepared baking dish. Stir the bread crumbs and remaining 1/4 cup of Parmesan in a small bowl to blend. Sprinkle the bread crumb mixture over the mashed potatoes. Recipe can be prepared up to this point 6 hours ahead of time; cover and chill.

  3. Bake, uncovered, until the topping is golden brown, about 20 minutes.
