Baked Mashed Potatoes 

This is a variation of the mashed potato kugel that I posted earlier. I realize that I may be repeating myself with this post, but, it was such a hit that I wanted to share it with everyone.

Over Passover, I had alot of leftover potatoes. So, I decided to mash them with sautéed onions and then bake them in the oven. 

This is a great way to use up leftovers and no eggs!

The recipe is very flexible and depends on the amount of potatoes that you have available.



Onions, sliced

Salt and pepper to taste.



Water as needed to desired consistency 


Boil potatoes. I cooked them in the pressure cooker, 7 minutes to pressure, using quick release method.

Sauté onions in oil until nicely browned. Add potatoes and water to the pan. Mash the potatoes and onions together with enough water to reach the desired texture. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Place mashed potato mixture into a pan. Lightly oil the top, so that the mixture will brown when baked. Sprinkle paprika on top.

Bake in 350* oven until done.

Here are the potatoes in the pressure cooker:

the final product — yum!

This was such a hit that I could barely take a picture of it after Shabbat. A ringing endorsement.

    My husband finds mashed potatoes easy to swallow so this is going to be a great change from the plain old potatoes I usually end up making! Thank you for the recipe.

    This recipe is a great example of why it’s sometimes wonderful to have left-overs. The left-overs can be used to create another dish that is as good or better than the original.

    Oh, these look tasty! It appears you leave the skins on the potatoes – just checking to see if that’s the case.

    I am nicknaming you Houdini. You can take food and make it’s original appearance disappear and reappear as a delicious alternative. There is only one place food winds up in your house; in someone’s belly!

      Thank you for your kind words. I thought this might be a bit risky but it turned out great. I find it fascinating that such simple ingredients can be so endlessly rearranged into such a variety of different outcomes.🌿

      The girls were actually fighting over it! They both loved it and as you can see, there was barely any left. I made it again this morning.
