3 pounds cubed, unpeeled red potatoes
6 garlic cloves, peeled and thinly sliced
1 cup 1% low-fat milk
3 tablespoons butter
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives or green onions


1. Place potatoes and garlic in a large saucepan; cover with cold water, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife (about 20 minutes). Drain; return to pot over low heat.

2. Add milk, butter, salt, and pepper. Mash potatoes with a potato masher to desired consistency.

3. Preheat broiler.

4. Transfer potatoes to a shallow 1 1/2-quart ovenproof casserole or baking dish. Combine cheese, breadcrumbs, and chives; sprinkle over potatoes. Broil 4-5 inches from heat source until cheese melts and starts to brown (3-4 minutes).
