How To Make Mashed Potatoes Cheese Pie
1 1/2 pound of Yukon Gold Potatoes (washed and sliced thin)
1/2 pound of cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 teaspoon of salt
4 tablespoons heavy cream
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon milk
salt & pepper to tasted
Place the potatoes into a saucepan with the salt. Add water until you have the potatoes covered.
Bring to a boil. Then cover the saucepan and let simmer for 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are done. Test with a fork. Should be able to poke through with ease.
Warm the cream and melt the butter together. You can use the microwave for this step.
Drain the water from the pot and put the potatoes into a large bowl.
Add the cream and melted butter in the bowl with the potatoes.
Mash the potatoes with a potato masher (duh?)
Now use a spoon to beat the potatoes a little bit more. As you do this add the milk and most of the cheese. Reserve some of the cheese for a topping. Do not over-beat the potatoes unless you like potato glue.
Salt & Pepper to taste
Place the potatoes in an oven-proof dish. Top off with the remaining cheese.
Place in 425F oven (uncovered) for 20-30 minutes or until cheese is melted on top and slightly brown.
