Cheesy Mashed Potato Pie

Cheesy Mashed Potato Pie ~ Deliciously different way to serve mashed potatoes and so CHEESY! #MashedPotatoes #PotatoPie #CheesyPotatoes

We are huge and I mean HUGE fans of mashed potatoes as for one, it is a delicious creamy side dish and secondly, mashed potatoes go with just about everything.

I have made mashed potatoes baked in a muffin tin, which I shared over at With A Blast some time ago, we have it the old-fashioned way - simply cooked mashed potatoes with added milk and butter.

But, this cheesy mashed potato pie tops them all ! If there is one thing I am absolutely certain of,  my family LOVE cheese especially combined with any kind of potato dish.
