An impressive mashed potato dish!
Servings: 6
Author: Darlene Glatnz Skees


  • 6 large baking potatoes
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 4 tbls grated American cheese
  • paprika


  • Peel potatoes and cook until done.
  • Drain and mash, adding the butter and milk. Beat until fluffy.
  • Spoon into a greased casserole, beat the whipping cream until stiff and spread over the potatoes.
  • Scatter the grated cheese on top and dash a bit of paprike over the whipped cream.
  • Bake at 350° until topping is golden.


Instead of whipping the cream by hand or with a mixer, I have a beautiful, stainless steel whipped cream dispenser with nitrous oxide chargers that makes perfect whipped cream in less than a minute making this chore simple.
I use whatever grated cheese I have on hand. Colby Jack will work just as well as American, or try Gruyere or another hard European cheese.
I am currently trying to use oat milk instead of dairy 2% and the results were just as good.
