POTATO PUREE WITH BACON AND MOZZARELLA

Servings 8 Portions

Ingredients

  • 1 kilo Potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons Cooking Butter
  • 1 / 2 cup Milk
  • 2 Eggs Whisked
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 tablespoons breadcrumbs
  • 250 grams Bacon small pieces
  • 200 grams shredded Mozzarella

Instructions

  1. Wash and peel potatoes, add them into a pot of salted boiling water on low heat until softened and set them aside to cool. Mash the potatoes with a fork or a Potato Masher, add in the butter, and slowly pour in the milk. Once you have done that add the eggs, Parmesan Cheese, Salt and Pepper.
  2. Tip: If the mixture is not smooth enough, then add in a little more milk.
  3. Take a buttered baking pan and sprinkle your breadcrumbs, and graded cheese to cover the bottom of the pan. Lay half of the mixture on top of the breadcrumbs and then add in the pieces of bacon, and shredded Mozzarella. Finish off by adding in the rest of your potato mixture and graded cheese.
  4. Tip: I also like adding broccoli into this dish, it gives it a nice twist. 🙂 18 X 24 cm. baking pan is ideal for this dish.
  5. Bake at 175 degrees for about 40 minutes and until lightly brown. Serve this warm 🙂
