Cheesy Mashed Potato Bake

2 c leftover mashed potatoes

1/4 c grated cheddar

1/4 c grated Mexican cheese blend

Salt and pepper to taste

1 egg

1/2 c bread crumbs, dry (or less)

Butter for dish

1 pinch grated cheddar

1 pinch grated Mexican cheese blend

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix together potatoes, 1/4 cup of each cheese, salt, pepper, egg and bread crumbs.

Melt a pat of butter in a glass pie dish. This will keep potatoes from sticking and add flavor. Place potato mixture in dish and spread evenly.

Top with remaining pinches of cheeses and bake for 30 min.

“You can add any combination of cheeses you like!”
