Twice Baked Mashed Potatoes

Preparation time: 15 minutes. Servings: 4.


  • 3 cups cold mashed potatoes
  • 1-3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 small eggs
  • 1/2-1 cup hot milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper



  • Heat butter and milk together
  • Whip potatoes in electric mixer with eggs and add half of the hot milk with seasonings
  • Add remaining milk only if needed to moisten well. (Potatoes will become much softer when hot so don't allow them to become "soupy.")
  • Place in greased baking dish and bake at 375 degree F oven until brown (about 30 minutes)

Try topping the potatoes with cheese the last few minutes in the oven. I do! :-) ENJOY your restaurant recipe and the company of those you share it with! - Donna
