A recipe for potato bake?

November 13, 2008 2:21am CST
Does anyone have a good recipe, that they actually use themselves, for a nice potato bake that DOESN'T have bacon in it? I don't want people to just google it. I can do that myself. I'd like actual tried and true recipes if anyone has one.

I haven't had this in ages, but this is one of my favorites from my childhood....my sister and I fought over it! If you are vegetarian you can take out the ham or substitute something else. MASHED POTATO PIE 5 med. potatoes, peeled and cubed (about 1 3/4 lbs.) 1/4 c. butter 1/4 c. milk 1/8 tsp. pepper one mozzrealla cheese, cut into cubes Ham steak cut into cubes (optional) Cook potatoes in boiling salted water until tender. Drain well; mash. Add butter, milk and pepper and stir until smooth. Fry cubed ham steak up in a frying pan until golden brown. Put cheese, ham and mashed potatos in a baking dish (they should be all mixed together so the ham and cheese are throughout the mashed potatoes). Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. If you want it a little crispy on top, put it under the broiler....but keep an eye on it! Yield: 6 servings.
