  • Make sure the potatoes are well-mashed. I find it is best to let them cool slightly after cooking, then rice them.
  • Dump all ingredients together in large bowl and mix well.
  • Transfer mixture to casserole dish (I usually use a 2 qt dish).
  • Bake at 325 degrees F for 45-50 minutes.
  • While the potatoes are baking, mix the ingredients for the topping and crumble over the top when there is approx 15-20 minutes left of baking time. When using a shallow dish I usually double the topping to cover the entire surface.
