  2. Preheat the oven to 350° degrees; rub a 13 x 9 inch baking dish with 2 tablespoons butter.
  3. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese into the dish and tip the dish so the cheese is evenly distributed and adheres to the butter.

  5. Using an electric mixer, beat the potatoes until smooth.
  6. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Transfer to the prepared dish and dot with the remaining 2 tablespoons butter.
