  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Place the potatoes into a saucepan, and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes, just until soft. Drain water, and mash potatoes. Beat in the butter, and about half of the milk using an electric mixer. Add more milk if needed to achieve the desired consistency of mashed potato. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Spread potatoes evenly in a 9x13 inch baking dish, or desired casserole dish. Sprinkle the bread crumbs and cheese over the top.
  4. Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until the cheese is melted and the top is browned. Serve immediately.

the only thing imho is if you beat the potatoes with a mixer you have whipped potatoes (aka mud) and with that texture the flavor goes bye bye too. mashed s/b as it says and it should have some lumps and texture and with the lumpier texture there is more flavor

I used instant mashed potatoes to save time, and subbed cheddar cheese for Jack. Also added 4 tbsp of sour cream to the mashed potatoes so they wouldn't dry out. Pretty good twist on instant potatoes.

Made lots of additions - sauteed onions, sauteed bell peppers, mushrooms. Made this for a tailgate party - I would probably make it again for the same type of occasion.

Very good! Big hit! I followed the recipe exactly except I added some bacon bits to it. WOW

Very good. Also tried sour cream in potatoes, cheddar(instead of jack), ranch bread crumbs, and sprinkled with chopped bacon and chives. Big hit.

Excellent recipe. I didn't have garlic seasoned bread crumbs so I just added some garlic powder to some store bought seasoned crumbs and it turned out perfect. Make sure you don't add too much milk at once or it may turn out a bit runny. If this does happen feel free to thicken it up with some potato flakes. Recipe is perfect as it stands. I will make this again.

This was pretty good, but I'm thinking perhaps a bit less bread crumbs for me next time and a little more cheese. It was just a bit too funky for me. Thanks though! :)
