Baked Mashed Potatoes

READY IN: 1hr 50mins
Recipe by Theresa P

This recipe is from a PBS telethon cooking show. This casserole is loaded with mashed potatoes, cheese, butter and hard salami, then baked till hot and cheesy! It sounds wonderful. I have not made this recipe, it is a recipe request.

This was a perfect side dish! My DH loved the salami, my son was skeptical at first, but liked it too. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for the recipe. :)
