➤ You’ll need :
▢½ cup 1 ounce grated Parmesan cheese
▢½ cup panko bread crumbs
▢2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
▢6 tablespoons unsalted butter cut into 6 pieces
▢Freshly ground black pepper
▢3 pounds yellow or Yukon Gold potatoes peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
▢3½ cups light or heavy cream (see *note)
▢¼ teaspoon baking soda
➤ Step-by-Step Guide to Making it :
Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 375°F. Spray a 13×9-inch casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.
In a small bowl, combine Parmesan, bread crumbs, melted butter and ¼ teaspoon salt; set aside.
Combine potatoes, 3 cups cream, baking soda, 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon black pepper in a large saucepan or Dutch oven.
Bring to a boil over medium heat and reduce heat to low.
Cook at a bare simmer, stirring often, until potatoes have softened to fork tender but not crumbling, about 25-30 minutes.
Remove from the heat and add remaining ½ cup cream and 6 tablespoons butter. Stir gently until butter has melted, about 1 minute.
Pour the mixture into the prepared casserole dish and sprinkle evenly with the Parmesan/Panko mixture.
Bake, uncovered, until golden brown and bubbling around edges, 20-30 minutes. Allow to cool 10-15 minutes before serving.
➤ Becky’s Tips:
- To make this recipe even more delicious, try adding some chopped chives or bacon bits on top.
- If you prefer a smoother texture, you can use a hand mixer instead of a potato masher to mash the potatoes.
- Be careful not to overcook the potatoes as they can become too mushy and lose their flavor.
- For a healthier version of this recipe, try using low-fat milk instead of heavy cream and less butter.
If you have leftover Parmesan creamed potatoes, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. To reheat them, simply microwave them for a few minutes or heat them up in a pan on the stove. If the potatoes have become too dry, you can add a little bit of milk or cream to them before reheating.
In conclusion, Parmesan creamed potatoes are a delicious and easy recipe that can be enjoyed as a side dish or a main course. With a few simple ingredients and some tips from Becky, you can create a flavorful and creamy potato dish that will please your taste buds.
