Potato Stuffing Recipe

This is an old Pennsylvania Dutch recipe I've always served as a side dish. The simple addition of onion and celery gives the potatoes a special flavor, and the parsley adds color.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 to 3 celery ribs, finely chopped
  • 6 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 2 slices white bread, torn
  • 3 cups mashed potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley


  • 1. In a large saucepan, saute onion and celery in butter until tender. Remove from the heat. Stir in the bread, potatoes and parsley. Spoon into a greased 1-qt. casserole.
  • 2. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 45 minutes or until top is lightly browned. Yield: 6 servings.

"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."

"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."
