Our family has been making this PA Dutch dish for generations.... it's yummy! I add about a half bag of seasoned croutons/stuffing mix instead of plain bread, and poultry seasoning to taste. I start with fresh potatoes, not leftovers, so add milk or cream to make it the desired consistency. Stir a couple of times while baking so it doesn't get too brown on the sides.

I had leftover mashed potatoes, and needed a side dish for ham. I added eggs and used a lot more bread. Any way you make it, it's a good side.

Really good! Great way to use leftover mashed potatoes. I added about 2 T of dried sage to make it more to my husband & my liking.

Made this for dinner last night and it was delicious. My daughter does not like mashed potatoes, but she really enjoyed this dish. Had some leftovers and today I made potato cakes fried in butter. Very tasty.

I have been making this recipe for many years but the only difference is that I use some thyme leaves and my family just loves it.
