Ingredients

  • 8 medium size russet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 Tablespoons freshly chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper , to taste
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk (or more as needed)
  • optional for flavoring: chicken bouillon, sour cream, garlic powder
  • 1 cup freshly shredded cheese

Instructions

  • Prick potatoes with a knife or fork. Bake potatoes at 400 for 1 hour. Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  • Cut the tops off of the potato and scoop out the flesh into a mixing bowl. 
  • Add butter, salt and pepper, parsley, evaporated milk and other desired seasonings. 
  • Mash with a potato masher and then mix with beaters until smooth (but don’t over-mix them or they will be gluey instead of light and fluffy.) 
  • Add more milk, if needed—it’s better if the filling is on the softer side because the potato mixture will thicken up as it cooks again in the oven.
  • Top with shredded cheese and bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes of until the cheese is bubbly.
