warm mashed potatoes

shredded Cheddar cheese
EXCELLENT, but read on, and you will be convinced to try it: I run 2 brewpubs in Portland, Oregon serving casual dining style entree plates. I saw this and Emailed it to my friend, as a joke. He routinely takes our brewpub meals, cuts the perfect plate presentation into small bites, & mixes everything with ketchup before eating it with a fork. I always make fun of him, and thought he would appreciate the joke. FAST FORWARD TO LAST NIGHT: To my shock, he prepared it as part of a Saturday barbecue. We giggled, drank beer, finished cooking the "real" food and sat down to eat. Result? Hands down, the hit of the barbecue with adults and kids alike. Obviously, it won't replace a main entree, but it's a super simple and shockingly great side dish. Use extra bologna, almost double.
This was way to heavy on the mashed potatoes and should have been in an 8x8 pan rather than a 9x13. It should have either more bologna added as 8 didn't cover the 9x13 pan so everyone would receive some meat or reduce the potatoes to 3. I would still use an 8x8 pan as the layer was really thin with 9x13. I will not make this again, although I like fried bologna and mashed potatoes, as I didn’t think it made a nice presentation or was all that flavorful. I was disappointed as I do like the individual ingredients.
Never thought of doing this in a casserole. Many years back my mom would use french bread and spread the potato and onions mixture on the bread then place a slice of bologna and top with cheese then put in broiler till cheese is melted. Was very yummy
Wow. I had no idea this would be SO GOOD!
I needed an easy dish for baby-sitters night. Our kids RAVED about it & our baby-sitter said it was terrific & she has asked for this casserole everytime she comes to babysit.
I made this because I had all the ingredients. My husband gave me a sneer when I told him what was in it. Then he ate and was telling his friends about it for the next week. It's a keeper!
This was amazing! It was super easy and really quick. I used instant potatoes (not nearly as good as real, but I was in a big hurry). I love fried bologna sandwiches with ranch style beans. I think next time I make it, I may try adding a can of ranch style beans on top of the potatoes. Thanks for a quick and simple, delicious recipe! PS-- this was even better the 2nd day once the bologna and potatoes had time to "meld"
Who'da thunk it? Something so simple could be so tasty! Hubby ate TWO huge helpings! Excellent leftovers.
As well as you cuz this was my favorite growing up and still is. Thanks so much for posting it.
