Baked Mashed Potatoes

I love hash browns but instead of frying potatoes I wanted to serve something that was baked. Use this as a  potato side option.
  • 4 c mashed potatoes (w/ butter, salt, pepper and milk)
  • 1/2 c diced onions
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • oil
  • 3/4 - 1.5 c cheddar cheese, grated
  • salt and pepper
  1.  Heat oil in pan. Saute onions and bell pepper until tender.
  2. Stir into mashed potatoes.
  3. Add cheese to taste (about half a cup).
  4. Season with additional salt and pepper if needed (If the cheese is salty, you won't need to).
  5. Spread evenly in 8x8 dish.
  6. Cover with remaining grated cheese.
  7. Bake at 180C uncovered 25 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  • Add sliced green onions and/or bacon.
  • Add eggs - yolks with the potatoes and stiffened egg whites at the last step to make the potatoes lighter.
