1 9X13 casserole

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 medium potatoes, coarsely diced (if using organic no need to peel them)
  • 3 tablespoons goat cheese (cream cheese)
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 18 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 18 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated
  • 18 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 12 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded (divided)
  • 12 cup cheddar cheese, shredded (divided)
  • 3 scallions, sliced (use white and green parts)


  1. Place potato cubes in a pot with water. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 15 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork. Drain.
  2. Return potatoes to the pot and add cream cheese and milk. Mash with a masher until rather creamy. Season with garlic, nutmeg and salt to taste.
  3. Now add in HALF of the mozzarella and HALF of the cheddar cheese (meaning 1/4 cup of each). Mash a little more.
  4. Add in scallions, mix well.
  5. Pour mashed taters into a 9X13 baking dish and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven at 180°C/350°F for 20-25 minutes or until nicely browned on top. If you like the top very brown, you can put the dish on the top rack for the last 5 minutes.
  7. Enjoy!
