Simple Potato Casserole
Every once in-awhile we go into our kitchen and realize we have barely anything to cook with. It’s in these times simple is better! This recipe is quick, easy, CHEAP, and easily customizable! This is just the basics, try stirring in 1 cup of shredded cheese, shredded meats, or steamed vegetables.
5lbs potatoes cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 med-lrg white or yellow onion
5 large garlic cloves
1 tablespoon soy sauce
7 cups potato mash
3 whole eggs + 1 egg white
3/4 cup whole milk
1 tsp white vinegar
1/2 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
2 tablespoons dry parsley
1/2 tablespoon corianderÂ powder* (optional but adds good flavor)
1 tsp red chili flakes* (optional)
5 tablespoons bread crumbs, divided
First, start by boiling all the potato mash ingredients for 20 minutes on medium. Mash with a potato masher and set aside.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix 3 tablespoons bread crumbs, milk, salt, eggs, vinegar, and seasonings. Let set for a few minutes, then mix the potato mash in one cup at a time. You want it to be like thick mashed potatoes, but not so thick it resembles wall paper paste (that would be gross!). Put your mixture into a casserole dish and sprinkle with the remaining bread crumbs. Bake for 40 minutes or until potatoes firm up and top is brown.
