Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 large baking potatoes, peeled (Russets are best)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 pint whipping cream, divided (1 pint is whipped)
  • 3 cups grated cheddar cheese (or to taste)


  1. Boil potatoes with salt until soft.
  2. Whip 1/2 pint whipping cream (beat only 1/2 pint!).
  3. Mash the potatoes and mix with remaining 1/2 pint UNWHIPPED whipping cream until thick, smooth and creamy.
  4. Add in salt and pepper to taste, and about 1/4 - 1/2 cup grated cheese; mix well to combine.
  5. Transfer to a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
  6. Spread the WHIPPED cream over potatoes.
  7. Top with the remaining grated cheddar cheese.
  8. Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  9. **NOTE** This is the method I use to bake the casserole, otherwise I find that sometimes the cheese gets hard on top.
  10. I cover loosley with foil,.
  11. Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour.
  12. Remove foil and bake for another 15-20 minutes, you may want to try this method, or you can most certainly bake it without using any foil.
  13. Delicious!
