Baked Mashed Potatoes
- 4 large baking potatoes, peeled and cut into 2″ chunks
- 1 cup shredded Jarlsberg cheese
- 1 cup milk
- 1 8 oz. container sour cream
- 1/2 cup butter
- fresh ground black pepper
Heat oven to 350 F.
Place potatoes in large pot of cold, salted water and bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and transfer potatoes to flat bottom bowl and mash. Add cheese, milk, sour cream, butter, salt and pepper. Mash all ingredients with potatoes until smooth. Pour mixture into baking pan and cover with foil. Bake, 30 minutes, covered. Uncover potatoes during last 10 minutes to allow browning.
