  • 4 lbs. russet potatoes peeled and chopped to 1" pieces
  • 12 oz. evaporated milk
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 Parmesan cheese shredded


  • place chopped potato into a large pot and cover with cold water
  • place on medium heat and bring to a boil, allow to cook until fork tender, about 15-20 minutes
  • drain off water and place potatoes into the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment
  • turn the mixer on and whip potatoes until all lumps are beat out
  • while potatoes beat, heat evaporated milk, garlic and butter over medium heat, stirring often
  • once potatoes are whipped smooth, turn down mixer to low and slowly add the warm evaporated milk mixture, including garlic
  • the potatoes will seem too wet but they need to be moist so they don't dry out while baking
  • add the salt and pepper to taste and the nutmeg
  • grease a baking dish and pour in the potatoes in an even layer
  • spread out the bread crumbs in an even layer over top of the potatoes and then top with the Parmesan cheese
  • cover with foil
  • if making ahead of time allow the potatoes to come to room temperature before placing in the refrigerator
  • when ready to bake preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • bake for 20 minutes or until potatoes are warmed through
  • remove the foil and allow to cook for another 5 to 10 minutes or until bread crumbs are browned
  • remove and enjoy!
